Sex Addiction: A Guide for Couples and Those Who Help Them is a practical book that provides empathic support, guidance, information and pragmatic strategies for couples who want to survive sex and porn addiction - whether that’s together, or apart. Sex and porn addiction devastates couple relationships, and unlike the impact of infidelity, there is no ‘before’ to get back to and no ‘after’. This book adopts the metaphor of a boat, presenting addiction as the tidal wave that devastates the relation-ship, leaving both crew members fighting for survival. There’s guidance to ensure each partner makes it safely back to shore and advice on surveying the damage to your relation-ship and deciding if you want to save it and set sail again. You’ll find practical advice for both the partner and the addicted partner, including first-hand accounts of couples that have already undertaken the journey. There are exercises to do alone, and many to share together, to help you understand what’s happened, consider your future, and if you choose to stay together, begin the task of rebuilding trust and intimacy. Sex Addiction is not only a practical guide for couples, but also for the therapists who support them. This book will be a companion to Paula Hall’s previous books on sex addiction and builds on the already known frameworks and models used, but it is also written to stand alone.

Sex addiction is on the increase - in the media as well as in the therapy room. But while more and more people seek help for their compulsive sexual behaviours, there is still confusion and debate about whether the condition even exists. Understanding and Treating Sex Addiction explains why an increasing number of people are inadvertently finding their lives devastated by their sexual behaviours. It explores the latest scientific understandings and research into why pornography, cyber sex, visiting sex workers, fetishes and multiple affairs can come to control some people's lives to the point that they can't stop. It explains how sex addiction is not a moral issue, as some assume, but a health issue that we as a society need to start taking seriously. Throughout the book are the revealing statistics from the UK's latest survey on sex addiction. Three hundred and fifty people who struggle with this condition have bravely and candidly shared their experience for the benefit of their fellow sufferers and those who choose to help them. This book contains support and advice for both the clinician and for those who suffer from sex addiction. As well as practical guidance and techniques for stopping compulsive behaviours and preventing relapse, there is also a thorough exploration of the deeper underlying causes and how these must be addressed.

As psychologists specializing in treating sex addiction, our jobs require us to work closely with people whose lives have fallen apart. Not all couples choose to rebuild, and that is always a very personal decision. This book is for those who do, and then often find themselves wondering, "How can we have a healthy sex life after sex addiction?" We have answered this question by developing Sexual Reintegration Therapy(SRT). If you have a vision for a better relationship, SRT gives you the plan. Even if you cannot see clearly how your wounded relationship can be healed, SRT will offer you that hope. SRT consists of a progressive series of clearly defined experiences (that we have been using successfully with our clients for years) that will help you address core intimacy issues that need upgrading. The lack of a structured program to promote healthy sexuality after sexual addiction has been a major source of frustration for many couples. It is also why so many of our professional colleagues, including Dr. Patrick Carnes, have been urging us to publish this book. A man who was nearing the end of the SRT program with his wife summed up his experience this way: "This program has been more helpful to us than anything else we've tried. We knew what we wanted- we just needed a plan that could get us there."

Increasing numbers of therapists are coming into contact with the problem of compulsive sexual behaviour disorders. However, it is still a relatively new field and there is little in the current literature available that enables the therapist to work with and treat this problem. CBT for Compulsive Sexual Behaviour: A guide for professionals addresses this by providing a guide to cognitive-behavioural theory and practice which includes the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of addictive sexually compulsive disorders. Beginning with a description of addictive sexuality and an overview of cognitive behavioural therapy in which CBT is presented as the most useful response, Thaddeus Birchard provides clear therapeutic information about the implementation of CBT treatment intervention. The chapters included cover the neuroscience that underpins the addictive process; a ‘how to’ chapter on the use of groups; paraphilias; trauma and attachment; comorbid disorders and cross-addictions and analysis on the function of internet pornography, all written from a cognitive behavioural stance. Using case vignettes throughout, Thaddeus Birchard draws on his own experience as a psychosexual therapist, along with the latest research in the field, to enable the therapist to treat a range of compulsive sexual problems in a way that can be applied in individual practice or in a group setting as well as how to prevent relapse. This book will be essential reading for psychosexual therapists, cognitive behaviour therapists and other professional working with sexual compulsive disorders.
