(Some Boards distinguish between general CEs and other types. Please review your specific state requirements to learn more.)
The concept of sexual addiction encompasses a wide range of behaviors, many of them with self-destructive and even life threatening consequences. Sexual addiction can destroy relationships, lead to job losses, and have a significant financial impact on the lives of those who struggle with sexual compulsions. Clients may feel that their behavior is outside of their control, or that they are spending too many hours in a day seeking sexual elusive satisfaction. The Internet has made sex widely available to millions of people, giving them constant access to their addictions. This course will discuss the intersection of sexual addiction and sexually compulsive behaviors with the addictive temptations freely available online.
