It has taken nearly 25 years for the psychotherapy and addiction fields to accept, honor and understand how to treat behavioral addictions. Thankfully, for some time now we have had diagnoses for compulsive gambling and gaming for example, labels which have not only validated the issues themselves, but that also pointed the way toward useful assessment and treatment planning in those arenas. But when it comes to compulsive or addictive sexual behaviors the path to clinical clarity is just beginning. In late 2018, World Health Organization formulated a brand-new diagnosis for Compulsive Sexual Behavior Problems. This diagnosis is the leading edge of change for a problem long viewed as a joke or simply as an excuse for bad behavior. This talk will review the history of the sexual addiction field and sexual compulsivity diagnosis, with an emphasis on current sex/intimacy/relationship problems being experienced by porn addicts. The talk will provide an overview of assessment and treatment for this population along with a new, more holistic vision of addiction treatment overall.
