On Dec. 16, 2011, Robert Weiss, LCSW, CSAT-S, will host a presentation on sex addiction treatment at Marmalade Café in Santa Barbara.

Clinicians, along with the average person, are becoming increasingly aware of the problem of sexual, porn and romantic addictions.

On December 16, 2011, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., internationally known author, addiction specialist and educator and founder of The Sexual Recovery Institute Robert Weiss, LCSW, CSAT-S, will speak to clinicians, individuals and families about treating sex addiction in the new media age.

Psychologists, counselors, therapists and addiction specialists will join Mr. Weiss for lunch at Marmalade Cafe in Santa Barbara, where they will spend the afternoon understanding the assessment of sexual addiction along with the full range of treatment options. In addition to discussing the origins of sex addiction and helping attendees develop a working knowledge of sexual recovery, Mr. Weiss will share the numerous ways that online media has influenced human sexual behavior and sexual addiction.

“Clinicians, along with the average person, are becoming increasingly aware of the problem of sexual, porn and romantic addictions,” said Mr. Weiss. “Becoming better educated about sex addiction and its treatment will help local clinicians be more effective in their practices and can be the first step toward healing for those struggling with sexually addictive behaviors.”
