OCSB Advanced Training Workshop
Rethinking Sex Addiction: A Sexual Health Model for Treating Out of Control Sexual Behavior

November 16, 2018
Nashville, TN

OCSB Advanced Training Workshop:

  • Are you a therapist interested in learning a new model for treating men (of  all sexual orientations)with problematic sexual behavior?
  • Are you looking for an innovative best practice model to increase your confidence and ability to effectively assess and treat men with out of control sexual behavior?
  • Are you looking for a method for motivating clients to change damaging patterns of online, compulsive, or impulsive sexual behavior?
  • Are you looking for sex positive interventions for men conflicted about their sexual turn-ons and erotic interests?

Doug Braun-Harvey’s innovative OCSB treatment model, based on over 20 years of clinical experience, combines extensive clinical practice with science and research from sexual health, human behavior, motivational change, attachment , self-regulation and eroticism within a combined individual and group therapy treatment model. The collaborative client/therapist treatment relationship is founded on the principle of men taking responsibility for defining and integrating their personal sexual health vision.

Learn material from his book (co-authored by Michael Vigorito): “Treating Out of Control Sexual Behavior” (The 2018 SSTAR Health Professional Book Award Winner).
