Joseph Winn, LICSW,  AASECT Certified Sex Therapist


Description: Sexual compulsivity is a controversial and hotly debated topic that is frequently referred to as addiction, impulsive / compulsive sexual behavior, hypersexuality, and paraphilias—all of which may resist the best efforts of skilled clinicians. In this 3-session training, we identify terms, outline major clinical models, and provide step-by-step suggestions for effective assessment and treatment of a wide range of personal problems and relational impasses associated with sexual compulsivity.  We explore differential diagnoses, systemic issues, medical conditions, and pharmacological agents that may actually trigger sexual compulsivity.  We also explore emotional and spiritual implications for clients, along with our own attitudes about what constitutes “normative” sexual behavior.  Part of each session is interactive, with encouragement for participants to offer cases for creative group supervision.


Fee: $150.00 before 09/12/10, $200.00 after 09/12/10.
