A Framework For Categorizing Problematic Sexual Behavior
Based on his article of the same name, which was awarded "Article of the Year" in the journal, Sexual Addiction & Compulsivity, this presentation describes a theory-neutral framework for categorizing varieties of problematic sexual behavior. It utilizes established measures of sexual health to arrive at a method for distinguishing forms of problematic sexual behavior without reference to the type and/or frequency of sexual activity, thus making it applicable to a diverse range of client populations. This framework includes five basic questions to enhance sexual health conversations about various forms of problematic sexual behavior. The framework avoids the use of labels in order to enhance inter-disciplinary collaboration across theoretical formulations. The framework is also used in the SASH "ATPSB" certificate training program.
