Course Overview

Sex addiction as a  problem has forty decades of research to help us understand the problem. Not only has our clinical awareness growing, but the problem itself is constantly mutating in that digitalized media has increased availability and options on an unprecedented scale. A problem that used to be quite focused in an age now spans the life span from childhood to the elderly. Each presentation is designed for therapists to acquire skills and comfort when cultural change walks in the door. At the same time resources available to therapists have catalyzed a whole new level of thinking about how to approach our nation’s number one health problem: addiction. In all of the addictions, sex has been the most difficult to talk about. However, no longer can any therapist not know the basics of an illness that is changing our culture. Concrete tools, strategies, resources, and assessments will be explored to help deal with the inevitable patient.
