PSB 101-for Professionals
This seminar is for professionals both new to the field of sexual health and already working in it. It addresses various labels for problematic sexual behavior as well as categorizing the types of behaviors for which people seek treatment. Sexual behavior that is problematic for some people may not be for others, and attendees will be given a framework to help them distinguish potential problems from healthy sexual behavior, as well as a list of potential risk factors that appear to contribute to the development of problems. Participants will review recent research on the effects of internet pornography , including effects on the brain, as well as the new diagnosis called "Compulsive Sexual Behavior Disorder" to be implemented via the World Health Organization's upcoming diagnostic manual, The International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11). Finally, attendees will learn about treatment options, plus support options for those affected and their partners.
