The National Council on Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity has defined sexual addiction as “…engaging in persistent and escalating patterns of sexual behavior acted out despite increasing negative consequences to self and others.” Therefore, people addicted to sex continue to engage in certain sexual behaviors despite facing potential health risks, financial problems, shattered relationships, and even arrest.
When sex becomes a problem, it can push people to do things they would not normally do if they were not suffering from an addiction. Behavioral addictions can be challenging to manage. The pages of this workbook are filled with assessments, activities, and journaling exercises that can help your clients or students overcome a sexual addiction and teach them essential skills aimed at helping them repair problems in their lives caused by a preoccupation with sex.
The purpose of The Sex Addiction Workbook is to provide helping professionals with cognitive and behavioral assessments, tools, and exercises that can be utilized to treat the root psychological causes of a sex addiction. It is designed to help people identify and change negative, unhealthy thoughts and behaviors that may have led to sex addiction. The activities contained in this workbook can help participants identify the triggers that can lead to a preoccupation with sex and teach them ways to manage and overcome those triggers.
