Private Practice in the Philadelphia area
The Pavilion At Williamsburg Place

Clinicians are often faced with clients who seek help for sexual activities or drug and alcohol abuse. Understanding how to assess for problematic sexual behavior can help clinicians understand treatment planning and goals.

This presentation will help clinicians understand what exactly problematic sexual behaviors are, how to discuss them, assess for them and begin to treatment plan. This overwhelming topic area will become less cumbersome and clinicians will find themselves armed for anything.



In this program, participants will:

  • Learn the basics around diagnostic issues surrounding problematic sexual behaviors.
  • Understand the comorbidity between sexual behaviors, personality disorders, and substance use disorders.
  • Learn how to assess for problematic sexual behaviors.
  • Understand how to treatment plan for these issues.
