Online Training: Treating Out of Control Sexual Behavior

In keeping with the call from many leaders in the mental health and sexual health areas to move beyond ‘sex addiction’, ‘sexual compulsivity’, and ‘hypersexuality’ conceptualizations of dysregulated sexual behaviour, Pink Therapy presents the first online course in the Braun-Harvey/Vigorito conceptualization of out of control sexual behaviour (OCSB) framed as a sexual health problem within a larger model of human behaviour, not a psychiatric or addictive disorder.

Real Therapy: Master Therapists in Practice [Assess and Treat Out of Control Sexual Behavior (OCSB)]

Doug Braun-Harvey applies his out of control sexual behavior (OCSB) Sexual Health Pathway Model in a series of 10 demonstration therapy video sessions. Go beyond understanding OCSB theory and methods as Doug Braun-Harvey implements OCSB assessment and treatment in ten unscripted live recorded sessions with client Michael Roussos (portrayed by Kevin Logie).
