Sex and Porn Addiction: A Basic Course in Differential Diagnosis and Treatment Planning Workshop

November 15 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Highly accessible online pornography, ubiquitous hook-up apps, and marital conflict contribute to the increasing prevalence of sexually compulsive behaviours. These conditions present new challenges in diagnosis and treatment for today’s clinicians. Prompt, effective action is crucial to limiting or preventing lasting impairments in sexual function and, in younger populations, sexual development. Despite this need, lack of evidence-based treatment guidelines also leave primary care providers without a clear course of action.

To fill this knowledge gap, Bellwood Health Services is pleased to sponsor an introductory workshop on the fundamentals of sex and porn addiction from IITAP. Facilitated by internationally recognized expert, author, and Certified Sex Addiction Therapist, Dr. Kenneth Adams, this workshop will inform and update licensed healthcare professionals on the latest research developments in:

  • Diagnosis of sexually compulsive behaviours, including porn addiction
  • Etiological factors such as trauma and attachment disruptions
  • The influences of common comorbidities in treatment
  • Addressing the impact on family members using a relational paradigm

This workshop is designed to provide insight and support, and help healthcare professionals more effectively diagnose and treat patients who have compulsive sexual behaviours.
