Dissociation and Sexual Addiction/Compulsivity: A Contextual Approach to Conceptualization and Treatment

Dissociation and Sexual Addiction/Compulsivity: A Contextual Approach to Conceptualization and Treatment | Dissociative Identity Disorder | Scoop.it

The possible relationship of dissociation to sexual addiction/compulsivity (SAC) among childhood sexual abuse (CSA) survivors is explored. In applying a treatment procedure based on functional behavioral analysis to CSA survivors exhibiting SAC it was frequently observed that SAC patterns of behavior were not sexually gratifying, but that clients had been previously unaware of this. These clients often had poor recall of even recent instances of SAC and described a subjective sense of being in a daze, truncated awareness, and absence of a sense of agency during SAC episodes. Repeated detailed description of recent incidents of SAC in session helped clients become less dissociative when subsequently participating in SAC behaviors and gradually reduced the appeal of engaging in them. On the basis of these observations it is argued that recognition of the dissociative quality of SAC behavior in CSA survivors is essential to adequately understanding it, and that targeting the dissociative elements of SAC in treatment is crucial to disrupting it. It is also proposed that in this clinical population SAC can reflect the dissociative disconnectedness represented by re-enactment of CSA experiences, failure to integrate emotional intimacy with sexuality due to insecure or disorganized attachment, association of sexual activity with soothing and validation rather than sexual arousal, or a combination of these factors.

Curator comment: There didn't seem to be a way to summarize this abstract so it is presented in its entirety.  The idea of encouraging people who may be acting out their sexual behavior in a dissociative manner (which is not always the case with the broad population of people who repeatedly violate their sexual commitments in a way that feels out of thier control) to repeatedly recall the specifics of such incidents of "truncated awareness" in order to heighten self-awareness seems sound.

Taylor Christensen's curator insight, January 9, 2014 12:17 PM

It is interesting to note that sexual addiction can be linked to this disorder. However, I wonder if the prior exposure to sexual abuse as children had an effect on whether or not this is prevalent in dissociative identity disorder victims.
