Alumni Signature Event 2019- Introduction to Sex Addiction and Emotional Incest

Friday, March 29, 2019
1:30 PM-4:30 PM


Come and Celebrate the conclusion of Social Work Month with us. Social Work Month is an important annual campaign that educates the public about the contributions of social workers and gives social workers and their allies tools they can use to promote the profession. Social workers are found in so many different areas. Come join us and celebrate those that act as advocates, champions and leaders who make our society a better place to live.

The event will include a two part training on Sex Addiction and Emotional Incest.

The introduction to sex addiction portion of the training will consist of: definition for sex addiction, neuroscience of sex addiction, causes of sex addiction, addictive system explanation, treatment implications, and a brief overview of sexual health/sobriety. The introduction to emotional incest portion of the training will consist of: definition of emotional incest and differentiation between overt/covert incest, characteristics in client presentation, and treatment methods with covert incest survivors. The information will be presented with the use of PowerPoint presentation slides as a vehicle for the data, flipcharts and markers to demonstrate addictive system and treatment techniques, hard copy handouts of critical data/concepts, and brief small-group experiential exercises to increase kinesthetic understanding of concepts.
