Recognising and working with sex addiction
Understanding and recognising sex addiction
This CPD workshop will provide counsellors and psychotherapists with a clear understanding of sex addiction. It will enable delegates to assess whether clients have 'out of control sexual behaviour', and for the delegates to understand the underlying issues that may lead to this condition. Assessment, referral, and ongoing work will also be discussed.
