Due to the behavioral responses often displayed by individuals with sexual behavior problems, often caused by changes to the flight/fright/freeze mechanisms causing survival responses, many people tend to only look at "what" is happening rather than "why" it is happening. These perceptions have led to many children and adolescents being incorrectly stamped with life altering labels that can leave to a lifetime of stigma and shame.

Therapists need to understand that many of these individuals gained their knowledge of sexual behavior through pornography, abuse, coercion, and trauma. To be successful a holistic approach is needed, that infuses the principles of healthy community interactions, evidence-based interventions, and life skills development.

In addition, the idea of data helping to inform treatment can be a scary proposition for many therapists. Once you learn specific ways to utilize data, it will become a vital step in helping to effectively target your interventions to meet the individual and unique needs of your clients.

Learn the five advantages of a treatment approach based on a data driven, trauma informed model, including a reduction in overall length of stay for clients with sexual issues. This webinar includes a case study of a client who completed the redesigned program in six months and returned home.
