Digital technology is not only changing the way we do business and communicate with friends, it’s also fueling major changes in sexuality and relationships.
London, UK (PRWEB) October 07, 2014
Robert Weiss, LCSW, CSAT-S, internationally acclaimed author, psychotherapist and founding director of the Sexual Recovery Institute, will conduct advanced classes on hypersexual disorders as well as the effect of digital technology on sex, tech, online porn and addiction on Nov. 10 and 11 at the London Marriott Kensington, in London.
Sponsored by Promises Treatment Centers, the event also features David Brown, LAC, CIP, a health professional with more than three decades of experience in addiction treatment, intervention and recovery, and Mark Gilman, MA, a public health educator and strategic recovery lead for Public Health England, an executive agency sponsored by the U.K.’s Department of Health.
“The topics we’ll be covering are universally relevant, particularly for therapists,” says Weiss. “Digital technology is not only changing the way we do business and communicate with friends, it’s also fueling major changes in sexuality and relationships. We’re seeing new and evolving forms of sexual addiction, and therapists worldwide are working hard to keep up.”
The presenters will explore current issues in sex addiction and recovery, and will provide practical information on treatment of complex sexual disorders and addictive behaviors.
The schedule is as follows:
- “Intervention and Sex Addiction” (David Brown, 10 to 11 a.m.)
