Understanding compulsive sexual behaviours

The event:

This 2-hour training will focus on how to assess compulsive sexual behaviours and how to help clients explore their sexual themes. There will be an opportunity for therapists’ self-reflection on their bias about sex and relationship. The training will address the various underlying causes of sexual compulsivity to help therapists make an appropriate formulation, and there will be an introduction to clinical interventions.
