Description

Working with Compulsive Sexual Behaviours: Beyond the Addiction Model with Silva Neves

2nd to 4th August 2019 10am to 5pm each day.

In this three day specialist training, Silva Neves, leading London based Sexologist, looks beyond the addiction model to draw on contemporary, evidence based approaches for treating clients with self identified compulsive sexual behaviours. In line with pluralistic philosophy, this practice based training proposes a paradigm shift towards a non pathologising, sex positive approach that centralises client individuality, diversity and cultural sensitivity. Attendees will leave the training feeling confident in their understanding of compulsive sexual behaviours and armed with a range of treatment approaches immediately applicable to clinical practice.

Day 1

  • Understanding compulsive sexual behaviours (CSB) from scientific and sexological thinking.
  • Making sense of diagnostic criteria and assessment measures.
  • The Out of Control Sexual Behaviour (OCSB) model: The 6 principles of sexual health.
  • Investigating the erotic mind and the arousal template.
  • Establishing realistic treatment goals from a non-heteronormative perspective.

Day 2

  • Investigating the underlying causes of CSB and OCSB; the impact of trauma, education, personality type and unaddressed psychosexual problems.
  • A pluralistic approach to treatment protocols; effective interventions from CBT, DBT, Gestalt, Compassion Based Therapy, Mindfulness and ACT.
  • Trauma resolution.

Day 3

  • Defining a thriving sex life after CSB.
  • Working with partners of people with CSB/ OCSB.
  • Maintaining the clinician’s self care.
