Sexual Addiction and Emotional Sobriety: The Intersection of Positive Psychology, Somatic Experiencing and Attachment
Time: October 2, 2020 @ 12 PM EST – 1 PM EST
Ending the compulsive sex is just the beginning. In order for those in recovery from sex addiction to move from sexual sobriety to emotional sobriety, they need to acquire and practice regulation skills and to live recovery in moderation. This workshop focuses on the skills and tools available from Positive Psychology, Somatic Experiencing as well as Attachment Theory. Learning to self-regulate, establishing mutual regulation, building somatic awareness to identify dysregulation vs. regulation are all essential ingredients toward emotional sobriety. As a result, meaningful and secure attachments become more possible acting as a catalyst for sustainable sexual sobriety.
