5.0 out of 5 stars Understanding & Treating Sex Addiction, 21 Jan 2013
As a therapist in this field I found this book a valuable tool. It is well researched and deals with what can be a controversial subject in a clear non judgmental way which is going to be helpful to therapists and clients. The author knows her subject well and her experience comes through. This book offers hope to people who may be in despair.

A very non biased book giving excellent information while totally non judgemental. Read in conjunction with You Tube: Your Brain on Porn Addiction (6 parts) plus the book 'Mending a Shattered Heart'. I now have a comprehensive understanding of the condition. AND I think it is all helping

5.0 out of 5 stars informative and comprehensive, 21 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am a therapist working with addiction and I found this a useful and comprehensive resource. The book outlines the different underlying factors that can take a client down the road to addiction. It also addresses the current situation where the sheer availability and quantity of porn that be accessed through the internet means that sex addiction can become a problem where no previous risk factors are present. The book outlines the neuroscience behind addiction. I would recommend this for anyone working in this area but also for those counsellors who aren't and may overlook when addiction is causing a problem in other areas of a clients life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Core text book, 4 July 2013
I am a therapist working in the field of sexual addictions.The particular strength of this book is how clearly it puts the various theories and models infroming sexual addiction into clear context, and then applies theory to therapeutic practice. The book does not lack critical rigour whilst at the same time it is a 'how to do' book, providing easy to follow, practical guidance and useful exercises for counselling with this growing client group. The book offers up-to-date discussion about an emerging sub-group of individuals: those with few attachment and/or trauma issues who have nevertheless become damagingly enmeshed in the (for them) addictive world of cybersex technologies. This book is clearly a must-read, core text book in this field.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical, wise and compassionate, 17 Jan 2013

A helpful overview of the topic of sex addiction. The author writes in a compassionate and understanding way - not judgmental at all. I find this very helpful - and she understands that there are people who find the term 'sex addiction' unhelpful and even judgmental: but she tackles this head-on, and makes the point that if a behaviour is harming the quality of someone's life, then it's a problem, whether you call it addiction, sexual compulsivity, or prefer to use some other term.

Particularly helpful is the way that the author separates the 'addiction' from 'sex' and helps us to understand that 'sex addiction' is not about bad morals, but that people often confuse the 'sex' bit as being about high sex-drive or an inability to control lust. Instead, she makes clear that sex is just like any other addictive possiblity, whether alcohol, tobacco, drugs... and that the addiction needs to be dealt with at several different levels.

I think any therapist will find this a useful book to have read and to keep on their bookshelf: more and more clients are presenting with issues of sex addiction, and it behoves us all to stay abreast of lastest thinking on the subject.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, 7 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent book which offers a relational approach to treating sex addiction as opposed to the 12 step addiction model. As a therapist working in this area, I still consider that the twelve step programme offers a much needed, and particulary important in my view, a" free" additional support structure together with personal therapy.
