In contemporary culture, the most common way to describe someone with sexual dysregulation is “sex addiction.” However, the approach of Modern Sex Therapy Institutes’ 15-hour certificate focuses on a less pathologizing and shame-based approach, using terms like “compulsivity” and “Problematic Sexual Behavior (PSB).” This certificate addresses compulsive behavior as a sexual health problem rather than an addiction issue in which consensual sexual urges, thoughts or behaviors <em>feel</em><i> </i>out of control. With theories and methodologies from the field’s preeminent thought leaders, this comprehensive training is designed to help clinicians identify problematic sexual behaviors and achieve holistic health-based outcomes for clients who struggle, inclusive of tools for their partners and family systems.
