NEW REVISED – Sex Addiction or Sexual Compulsivity? – ONLINE

How to provide client centred, evidence-based assessment and therapy


This CPD workshop will provide counsellors, psychotherapists and health professionals with a thorough understanding of popular conceptualisations of sex addiction, porn addiction and CSBD (Compulsive Sexual Behaviour Disorder), with particular focus on a biopsychosocial model. Underlying causes will be explored, including trauma and attachment issues along with the most common harmful consequences that prompt clients to present for therapy. Based on the three core elements of evidence-based practice, workshop attendees will be offered skills practice using two validated clinical assessment tools and a framework for ongoing therapy. The importance of understanding positive sexuality and diversity will underpin this training as the foundation for developing an ethical and client-centred approach.
