Understanding & Recognising Sex and Porn Addiction
Therapist, Director and Clinical Associate of
The Laurel Centre
This CPD workshop will offer a thorough 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 CPD will help therapists to guide the client in making that decision. It will provide a definition of sex addiction, will help recognise different classifications and causes of sex addiction. It will help participants understand sex addiction from a biopsychosocial perspective and will provide participants with tools to help clients self-diagnose either an active addiction or their ‘at risk’ behaviours. The workshop will provide an understanding of the cycle of addiction including triggers and underlying issues. It will give an overview of treatment options and look at the impact of disclosure / discovery on partners and their reactions. We shall learn to SURF (4 stage partner recovery).
