This training will explore the belief system of the sex addict as defined by Dr. Patrick Carnes. Each disorder carries a specific belief system that informs the individuals behavior and identifying such a process serves invaluable to the treatment process as you gain an insight into the development of the behavior and not only a description of the problem itself. The belief system of the sex addict is complex and carries with it a history of trauma, family dysfunction, issues related to self-esteem, and an unhealthy attachment to sex. This training will describe the belief system of the sex addict and offer suggestions on how to engage the client in untangling its complex web.
