Sex addiction can be viewed as a psychological disorder that involves an unhealthy preoccupation with sexuality or an obsession with sexual activity and/or romantic love. Any behaviour which is intensely mood altering has the potential to become an addiction.

Programme certification

Certificate of Attendance in “ Sex Addiction” from The Learning Curve Institute.

Programme Aims

The aim of this workshop is to provide an overview of sexual addiction and to allow space and time for the group to discuss this issue and learn of ways of dealing with it. There will be time allocated to practice the skills associated with working with a person who has a sexual addiction. There will be “real” scenarios taken from the group and then worked on using these skills.  This is done to enhance the learning experience and to make the connection between theory and practice.

Programme Content

Throughout the training students will have the opportunity to observe and practice the theory of working with people who have a sexual addiction through role-plays and scenarios provided by the trainer.

The methodology used in this training will be a combination of the following:

Participative: The participants will be asked to contribute to the training both in the large group and also in smaller ones. There will be a number of exercises throughout the training that are designed for the group to be split up into smaller groups.

Experiential: The training will allow participants to contribute by using examples of anonymous clients that they have worked with or are currently working with.

Theory into practice: The training will allow some role plays that will encourage participants to put the theory  into practice.

Information giving: There will be handouts and information on relevant reading that will be distributed at each days training.

Worker led: The training will be flexible to the needs of the group.
