"Impulsive, Compulsive, Problematic and More! An Introduction into Understanding, Assessing, and Treating Sex Addiction"
So your client says they’re a sex addict? If you’re like most therapists for whom this is not a specialty, you’ve probably asked yourself some questions. Is this even a real thing? Does my client have it? If so, what do I do about it? You’re not alone! Media scandals, internet confusion and diagnostic controversies have all left folks wondering what they do with a clearly suffering client in their office. How do I help without stigmatizing? How do I support while keeping accountability? What about those that have been harmed? The goal of this training is to give you an overview around the basic concept of sex addiction, how to assess for it, and some initial ways to help. We will also be discussing treatment available for these kinds of issues and how to pursue more advanced training to assist clients and their families around sexually addictive issues.
