Clinical Management of Sex Addiction

by Patrick J. (The Meadows in Wickenburg, Arizona, USA) Carnes

Clinical Management of Sex Addiction Synopsis

Clinical Management of Sex Addiction's newest edition updates many of the original chapters from 28 leaders in the field with new findings and treatment methods in the field of sex addiction. With a growing awareness of sex addiction as a problem, plus the advent of cybersex compulsion, professional clinicians are being confronted with sexual compulsion with little clinical or academic preparation. This is the first book distilling the experience of the leaders in this emerging field. It additionally provides new chapters on emerging areas of interest, including partner counseling, trauma and sexual addiction, and adolescent sex addiction. With a focus on special populations, the book creates a current and coherent reference for the therapist who faces quickly escalating new constellations of addictive sexual behavior. Readable, concise and filled with useful interventions, it is a key text for professionals new to the field and a classic reference for all clinicians who treat sex addiction.

Clinical Management of Sex Addiction Press Reviews

This latest edition of Clinical Management incorporates a current understanding of addiction neuroscience with the vast experience of clinicians who understand that human sexuality can be a wonderful garnish to life, or a demanding tyrant. It represents a state-of-the art description of how enlightened professionals can help their clients reclaim their lives. Donald L. Hilton Jr., MD, FAANS, FACS In this extraordinary new edition, Carnes and Adams compile a trailblazing work on the importance of understanding sexual addiction from all conceivable angles ranging from the impact of early childhood attachment strategies to treatment protocols. Replete with the latest scientific findings, this outstanding work combines research with clinical practice, making this book both a practical and intellectually stimulating guide. Alexandra Katehakis, author of Sex Addiction as Affect Dysregulation: A Neurobiologically Informed Holistic Treatment The new edition of Clinical Management continues to be a brilliant, groundbreaking and vital resource to anyone who wants to understand the clinical management and research issues associated with sexual compulsivity and addictions. I can't recommend it highly enough. Kenneth Paul Rosenberg, MD This book is an up-to-date, historical look at the development of the field of sex addiction. It is a useful tool for therapists, training programs, sex addicts and partners of sex addicts. Stefanie Carnes addresses the challenges of children of sex addicts - a neglected area in most of our literature and presentations. As a minister/therapist, I appreciate the chapter on pastors by Mark Laaser and Ken Adams. Thanks to Ken McGill for the chapter on 'The Homeless and Sex Addiction.' This book integrates major facets for our sex addiction treatment world and is a 'must read.' Ralph H. Earle, PhD, ABPP, CSAT With this revised edition, Carnes and Adams, masters of their craft, bring together renowned experts and scholars in the sex addiction treatment field and bring this classic clinical text into a new era. Richly grounded in the science of addiction, this text is a must-have for the library of the therapist who treats addiction of any type. Craig S. Cashwell, PhD, LPC, NCC, ACS, CSAT-S
