Gay men are sometimes concerned about their sex lives being out of control. They may present for help with self-diagnosed "sexual addiction". In this workshop, we will offer some new ways of thinking about sexual compulsivity and explore whether the 'Addiction model' is appropriate for conceptualising and working with such issues.
Sexual addiction is not a recognised and validated diagnostic category in the DSM or ICD. Treatment approaches are largely sex negative, pathologising and can compound the shame the client is already feeling about their sexuality. They also lack a political and cultural analysis. In this workshop we will offer non-shaming, sexuality affirmative ways of conceptualising sexual expression – and explore some alternative ways of understanding and working with people who feel their sexuality is out of control.
We will explore how you can integrate some of these new concepts into your own therapeutic model. The seminar will be both didactic and experiential with opportunities to explore client and personal material. The workshop is open to therapists of all genders and sexual identities.
Training time is from 1pm to 7pm.
This workshop is being offered twice in 2013. Please choose between the February or November options below.
