Compulsive behaviors dissociate the user from uncomfortable feelings, numbing emotional pain while creating complications and consequences. But stimulants, especially when combined with sex, fuel a desire for intensity and connection as well. Combining stimulants and sex dissociates the user from low self-worth, shame, and other inhibitions while boosting arousal, a sense of invincibility, and high-risk sex. Providing skills to manage the lower intensity of recovery is essential, along with helping the client develop a sense of compassion for themselves. This workshop reviews strategies to recognize emotional triggers, improve affective regulation, and manage and re-differentiate fused behaviors, all of which are essential for recovery and the restoration of healthy intimacy as well.
- Participants will identify the relationship between stimulant use, high-risk sex, and the negative impact on healthy connection and intimacy.
- Participants will demonstrate knowledge of the nature and role of intensity in the addictive cycle.
- Participants will list specific clinical techniques that help clients understand and manage the role of intensity in their addiction and recovery.
