Treating Out of Control Sexual Behavior
Join us in Madison, WI for this advanced training to learn an emerging best practice outpatient treatment model for men with out of control Sexual Behavior (OCSB). This intimate 12 hour AASECT CE training will provide a forum for expansive dialogue and discussion between professionals about recently published book “Treating Out of Control Sexual Behavior: Rethinking Sex Addiction” by Douglas Braun-Harvey and Michael Vigorito (2016).
Douglas Braun-Harvey’s innovative OCSB treatment model, based on over 20 years of clinical experience (co-developed with Michael Vigorito), 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 principles of men taking responsibility for defining and integrating their personal sexual health vision. We will be focusing on the client, their partner and group
work with the client.
We hope you can join us in May in beautiful Madison, WI. The training will take place in a private room at Field Table Restaurant located directly on the famous square in the heart of downtown. Field Table is known for it’s nutritious farm to table food and lunch will be included both days. Please pass along to colleagues this opportunity to learn in a group of professionals interested in an alternative to existing approaches to assessing and treating sexual behavior. This intimate training is designed to optimize participant consolidation of learning through discussion, dialogue and lively critical thinking. Space is limited to 20 participants. The cost is $425 with lunch included both days.
