Mental health CE course description

Sexual addiction is a progressive disease and intimacy disorder characterized by compulsive sexual thoughts and acting-out behaviors.

Like all addictions, its negative impact on the addict and their partners and family members increases as the disorder progresses.

Given the current pandemic, many individuals in recovery have been struggling with sobriety while also trying to heal the relationship with the partner they have betrayed. There also seem to be even more cases since shelter-in-place orders ended.

This program is designed to give participants an overview of sex addiction, partner betrayal trauma, and the complications of building security in these relationships during challenging times.

 

Mental Health CE course objectives

  • Identify the signs and symptoms of sex addiction including the types of acting-out behaviors and the arousal templates of sex addicts.
  • Identify the signs and symptoms of partner betrayal trauma.
  • Identify the role trauma and attachment injuries play in the genesis of this addiction and techniques to aid clients in trauma recovery.
