Wickenburg, AZ (PRWEB) September 20, 2013
The Meadows Alumni Association is pleased to host an alumni workshop in Houston, Texas., for alumni on Sept. 24, 2013, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. at the Council on Alcohol and Drugs. Doug Sorensen, LCSW, CSAT-S, CCF-C, will lead the discussion on the topic of “Intimacy.”
Sorensen is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Sex Addiction Therapist. He began his private practice in 1989 after working several years with individuals and families at an intensive outpatient chemical dependency program. His clinical experience includes extensive work with men seeking to rebuild their lives and their relationships from the devastating consequences of childhood trauma and addiction. In 1996, Sorensen began training with Dr. Patrick Carnes, Senior Fellow for The Meadows, regarding the use of his Task-Centered approach in the treatment of sexual addiction and other intimacy based disorders. His clinical approach to addiction treatment and the underlying trauma, which often surfaces in recovery, combines the Task Model of Dr. Carnes, the Development Immaturity Model developed by Pia Mellody, Senior Clinical Advisor for The Meadows and a Meadows’ Senior Fellow, and the Shame Resilience curriculum developed by Dr. Brene Brown.
Sorensen is a certified training supervisor for clinicians seeking certification as sexual addiction therapists by the International Institute for Trauma and Addiction Professionals (IITAP). He is also a Certified Connection Facilitator and Consultant (CCF-C) trained by Dr. Brene Brown, to facilitate the Connections Shame Resilience curriculum and consults with other clinicians regarding their use of the curriculum in clinical practice.
