This groundbreaking book reconsiders popular notions of addictive sex. Braun-Harvey and Vigorito‚Äôs sexual health psychotherapy protocol is an innovativetreatment approach for men experiencing sexual lives beyond their control. ‚ÄúOut of control sexual behavior‚Äù (OCSB) is defined as a sexual health problem inwhich consensual sexual urges, thoughts, or behaviors feel out of control. As opposed to a clinical disorder, OCSB is framed as a behavioral problem withinthe normal range of sexual expression.
The book provides step-by-step tools for assessment, treatment planning, and implementation stemming from the authors‚Äô work with hundreds of individual andgroup therapy clients. OCSB treatment matches individual and group therapy interventions with current motivational interviewing and readiness-for-changeresearch. Further, this approach emphasizes the clinician‚Äôs ethical responsibility to provide the most effective treatment while protecting client sexualrights and welcoming sexual diversity. Rich and varied composite case examples demonstrate clinical sexual health treatment conversations as well asstories of hope and guidance to understand how sexual health is an ally for changing OCSB.
