Robert Weiss, LCSW, CSAT-S, author, senior vice president of clinical development for Elements Behavioral Health, and authority on sexuality in the digital age, takes readers through 24 exercises to guide sex addiction recovery in his latest publication Sex Addiction 101: The Workbook.
The new release, available in paperback and e-book, functions as a companion to Weiss’ highly regarded full-length book Sex Addiction 101: A Basic Guide to Healing from Sex, Love, and Porn Addiction. “The book provides an in-depth look at the nature, causes and treatment of sexual addiction,” Weiss explained, “while the new workbook complements that by setting out concrete tasks and asking thought-provoking questions designed to walk the recovering addict to a more fulfilling future.”
The workbook is divided into five sections, each focused on a different phase of healing.
- Section one helps the reader develop a personalized definition of and plan for sexual sobriety.
- Section two explains the various facets and nuances of the addiction.
- Section three focuses on relapse prevention, in particular the development of coping skills that can help the recovering sex addict stay sober no matter what.
- Section four looks at identifying and addressing the underlying issues driving the addictive behavior.
- Section five examines life in sobriety, including dating and developing a happier, more well-rounded life.
The 24 exercises in the workbook are built on evidence-based treatment methods that have been proven effective with clients at The Ranch(SM) treatment center, along with the author’s 20-plus years of professional experience as an intimacy disorders and sex addiction treatment specialist. Over the years and in various forms these exercises have helped thousands of men and women heal from sex, porn and love addiction and reclaim rewarding intimate relationships free of compulsion.
