Comprehensive Problematic Sexual Behavior Evaluations

Comprehensive Sexual Behavior Evaluations

Comprehensive Evaluations for Sexual Behavior Problems

 

For those who struggle with problematic or compulsive sexual behaviors (commonly termed sex addiction or porn addiction), thoroughly assessing for the underlying nature of the struggle, as well as other possibly related mental health struggles, is essential to determine the most effective treatment for them.  Each individual is unique, and therapy should be tailored to a client’s particular needs.  We offer a number of specialized tests, combined with clinical interview, to help determine underlying personal, sexual, and mental health struggles beyond just a quick label of sex addiction or porn addiction.  Evaluation not only serves to highlight necessary treatment areas but can jump start your treatment making it a more efficient and effective process. 

 

We do not promote any "one size fits all" conceptual models

such as sex addiction or porn addiction

for sexual behavior problems

 

A thorough sexual behavior evaluation will generally assess for the following:

  • Sexual history and behavior patterns

  • Sexual functioning

  • Exploration of possible functions of the sexual behaviors

  • Relationship and attachment patterns

  • Personality factors

  • Comprehensive screening for mental health struggles

 

Your PBH therapist can assess for these important areas.  However, many individuals who are concerned about their sexual behavior choose to start by scheduling a comprehensive evaluation with Dr. James Olsen, who is a leader in the field of sexual health and sexual behavior problems.  Individuals who are evaluated by Dr. Olsen receive ample personalized attention and are able to hear his conceptualization of their struggles as well as his recommendations for effective intervention.  Once an evaluation is completed, Dr. Olsen works to fit clients with a treatment provider who has the specialized skills to best address the particular underlying struggles they are facing.  Additional recommendations for injured partner therapy as well as couples’ reconciliation therapy can be offered as well.
