A biopsychosocial view of sex addiction | fdgedf | Scoop.it

In this article I explore both the name and the meaning of ‘sex addiction’ and offer a biopsychosocial view through which we might understand the complexity of cases presented before clinicians. Through published research and clinical experience, this paper looks at the biological, psychological and social influences of sex addiction in a hope that a broader understanding will increase dialogue between professionals of differing viewpoints and help develop multi-disciplinary approaches to treatment. The therapeutic dilemmas presented by this controversial and often maligned condition are also considered.
