6-Day Intensive for Partners
The Co-Sex Addiction Treatment Model is a form of Diagnostic Mislabeling and a form of Gender-Based Violence.6-Day Intensive for Partners Impacted by Sex Addiction
Our pioneering Sex Addiction-Induced Trauma Model asserts the importance of not confusing and misdiagnosing a partner’s C-PTSD symptoms as “co-sex addiction” and ushers in a significant paradigm shift in sex addiction treatment. ISH has developed a highly innovative Six-Day intensive of clinical psycho-education and support for partners impacted by sex addiction and compulsivity based on the sex addiction-induced trauma model.
- This Program is temporarily unavailable. Dr. Minwalla and ISH are developing and adapting this program and will be providing re-envisioned programming for partners and spouses impacted by SAIT coming in 2015. Personalized options may possibly be arranged upon consult; 310-286-1300.
ISH offers a partner-centered curriculum that provides vital information and support regarding sex addiction-induced trauma among partners of sex addicts. The intensive involves a structured, organized group process centered on the 13 dimensions of trauma often experienced by spouses and partners of sex addicts. Our program addresses the psychological, emotional, sexual, relational, and treatment needs of spouses and partners of sex addicts. The program also integrates expressive therapies and trauma-based regulation. The intensive utilizes an empowerment model, our sex addiction-induced trauma model, that is designed to optimize safety, validation, empathy and support, and resiliency.

Why: The 6-day intensive offers a partner-centered curriculum that provides vital clinical information and psycho-education regarding sex addiction-induced trauma among partners of sex addicts and gives partners the experience of our empowerment model that is designed to optimize clarity, safety, validation, empathy, support, and resiliency. The Sex Addiction-Induced Trauma Model: ISH is a strong advocate for evolution in the field towards a model that recognizes and treats the significant and profound trauma (PTSD/C-PTSD) experienced by partners of sex addicts that results from the consequences of sex addiction and compulsive sexual behavior and the associated patterns of relational perpetration, violation and abuse in the context of an intimate relationship and family system. We do not endorse or use a “co-sex addiction” model to understand or treat a partner or spouse impacted by sex addiction and patterns of relational perpetration. For more information about our Partners Impacted by Sex Addiction Program. We Can Help: The spouse and partners of sex addicts intensive is partner-centered, which means that it is for and about you, the partner or spouse impacted by the consequences of sex addiction. The program is not focused on learning about the addict or sex addiction.
