Since 2012, we’ve been pleased to offer our colleagues in the Portland counseling community a bi-monthly presentation on topics important to mental health providers and students.

Sex and Love Addiction in an Existential-Humanistic Context

Presented by Kerry Cohen, Psyd LPC

Is sex and love addiction really an addiction? The answer is complicated because sex and love are existential, gendered, and are contextualized inside a culture that sanctions limited experiences of both. In this talk, I’ll discuss what sex and love addiction really is, why it often goes unnoticed or misdiagnosed, and how current approaches to treatment largely miss the boat. And, I’ll highlight how to treat people who struggle with it in a compassionate and effective way.

For the time being, all our activities will be held via webinar (Zoom)
