Understanding Sex Addiction from a BioPsychoSocial Perspective- ONLINE

Understanding & Recognising Sex Addiction

This CPD workshop will provide counsellors and psychotherapists new to the field of sex and porn addiction with an understanding of sex addiction from a BioPsychoSocial viewpoint. Ultimately only the ‘addict’ can decide if their behaviour is ‘addictive’ or out of control but this intense and information packed day will help therapists to guide the client in making that decision. The day also provides the tools for developing understanding of the roots of the addiction and suggestions for providing ongoing work and referral.
