Heather Seguin, Registered Marriage & Family Intern, Certified Sex Addiction Therapist Candidate
Problematic sexual behaviors are an increasing sociological and therefore clinical issue. Some people may be aware of how their sexual choices are negatively impacting their life and will seek help on their own. Oftentimes, it is only after significant loss (discovery by partner, being fired, getting arrested) that a person will walk through our doors. This presentation will help clinicians identify problematic sexual behaviors and develop tools for helping clients create a healthier overall lifestyle and sexuality.
1) Develop an understanding of process/behavioral addictions
2) Learn foundational assessment tools for identifying sexual addiction/compulsion
3) Understand the traumatic impact of addiction on partners of sex addicts
4) Be able to implement introductory interventions and gain knowledge of other resources available
