Description

While Compulsive Sexual Behavior Disorder (or sexual addiction) has not been entered into the DSM, the World Health Organization has identified it in their International Classification of Diseases as an impulse control disorder. As this disorder makes movement into our collective awareness, we must become informed about its diagnosis and treatment. In this training, some basic clinical considerations will be identified for treating those with sexual addictions and their traumatized partners. We will take an introductory look at assessment and diagnosis, a task model for treatment, betrayal trauma, and relationship repair.
