Sexual addiction: myth or reality
Portslade (Brighton and Hove)
In this one-day event Dr Birchard will discuss the many clinical presentations, descriptions and definitions of sexual addiction. He will look at an historical survey of the addiction approach, the causes of addiction (aetiology), the impact of neuroscience, typical treatment interventions, and co-morbidity issues.
Dr Birchard will provide clear information on helpful interventions for compulsive sexual behaviour that can be used in individual therapy as well as with groups. The main focus of the day will be to provide therapists with tools they can use in helping their clients. These will include formulation, schema questionnaire, values clarification, sex plan, harmful consequences, trauma egg, the cycle of addiction, cognitive distortions, creation of a narrative of the sexual and relationship history and relapse management.
