Beyond Sex Addiction: Expanding our Understanding and Treatment of Problematic Sexual Behavior

  • PPSC, 14th Floor 80 Fifth Avenue New York, NY 10011

This talk has been approved by New York State for 2 hours of Continuing Education Credit for LMSWs & LCSWs, and will be led by Nathan Rice, LCSW, S-PSB.

There is a growing phenomenon of people struggling with out-of-control and destructive sexual behaviors. The dominant treatment approach for problematic sexual behavior has been the sex addiction treatment model. Although there are aspects of this model that are worth knowing and practicing, “the one-size-fits-all” approach has the potential of demanding compliance from patients in a way that may reenact childhood developmental traumas. Fortunately there are alternative and lesser-known treatment models that can broaden our knowledge base and clinical repertoire to provide customized treatment to those struggling with problematic sexual behavior.

Nathan Rice, LCSW, is an integrative psychoanalytic psychotherapist and supervisor with a specialty in addictions, particularly problematic sexual behaviors. Certified as a specialist in problematic sexual behavior (S-PSB) by the Society for the Advancement of Sexual Health (SASH), Nathan has honed his skills working with problematic sexual behaviors at New York Pathways, a nationally recognized sex addiction treatment center, where he develops programming and provides individual, couples and group therapy. Nathan is currently pursuing post-graduate training in psychoanalysis at the Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Study Center (PPSC).
