Sex Addiction: Convenient excuse or

New Therapist is excited to announce its next CPD workshop, due to take place in Pietermaritzburg on May 31, 2014, and entitled Sex Addiction: Convenient excuse or inconvenient reality.

Dr Helen Keen, a previous New Therapist speaker, will bring her decades of experience in the addiction field to bear on the topic.

Helen will interrogate whether this is, indeed, an addiction before going on to synthesise the research and thinking on this topic, looking at a range of issues from causation to symptoms and, most importantly, treatment.

The workshop will be of particular interest to those working with addiction of any sort, including social workers, psychologists, psychiatrist, and other counsellors.

Material to be covered includes the following:

  • Introduction to the concept of addiction
  • Causation of addiction
  • Development of sex addiction
  • The four rewards of addiction
  • Courtship and the 10 compulsive types of sex addiction
  • Co-addiction (specifically in the partner)
  • Multiple addictions
  • Cybersex
  • Screening for sex addiction
  • Treatment


Application has been made for four CPD points for the workshop.
