Description - Clinical Management of Sex Addiction by Patrick Carnes
As sex addiction and cybersex dependence appear in therapists' caseloads, mental-health professionals are confronted with treating sexual compulsions with little clinical preparation. In bringing together the work and experience of 28 pioneers in addiction medicine and sex therapy, Carnes and Adams provide a long-needed primary text about how to approach treatment with sex-addicted clients. Coverage of assessment and intervention strategies is provided as well as various treatment approaches including art therapy, group psychotherapy, and pharmacological interventions. Also in focus are the treatment of special populations such as female sex addicts, sexually addicted health-care professionals, pastors, gay men, and adolescents. This title should prove a useful introduction for professionals new to the field as well as a reference tool for the seasoned clinician.
