VIRTUAL EVENT BY HOPE PROGRAM

About the event

Overview:

Hypersexuality is defined as a stronger than usual urge to have sexual activity.

Researchers and clinicians remain largely divided on whether hypersexuality is a

central feature of a distinct diagnostic disorder or whether it simply reflects

normative, albeit high, sexual drive. Despite the ongoing controversy, non-

paraphilic hypersexual behavior continues to be an important clinical construct

and has been embedded in etiological models of sexually aggressive behavior and

has also been found to covary with recidivism among those who have committed

sexual offenses. Consequently, it has become an important target for assessment

and treatment for individuals convicted of sexual aggression. In this

presentation, discussion will focus on construct of Compulsive Sexual Behavior

Disorder, it’s place in current nosology, as well as specified problems, ranging

from global issues about its core theoretical conceptualization to specific

issues about the content and structure of the scales used to measure it. New

research from two distinct data sets totaling 1,857 respondents will be presented

that underscore these aforementioned issues, particularly around assessment and

measurement. Implications pertaining to the treatment of individuals presenting

with hypersexuality will be discussed including the identification of specified

treatment targets among other pertinent issues related to effective intervention.
