APSATS Certification Training
West Palm Beach, FL
The Multidimensional Partner Trauma Model Training Sex addiction and compulsivity is an issue being encountered within all clinical treatment settings. The wounded and betrayed partner or spouse is, in many settings, the primary patient/client seeking effective assistance and treatment. Over the past several years, there has been a move toward utilizing a trauma perspective in treating the traumatic impact of sex addiction upon the partner or spouse. This is the essential difference from the historical sex addiction models that emerged in the 1980s. Our Multidimensional Partner Trauma Model training seeks to provide a sound foundation for assisting partners in their healing process, and is the required training toward certification as a Clinical Partner Specialist (CCPS) or Partner Coach (CPC).
This four-day training will:
review prevailing models of treatment for partners of sexual addicts
introduce a unifying model for treatment of partners, and
discuss the various traumatic effects surrounding sex addiction upon the intimate partner or spouse
The training will also discuss:
treatment strategies and techniques
assessment processes, and
ongoing support necessary for successful trauma resolution for the partner and the relationship
gain understanding of the Multidimensional Partner Trauma Model of partner treatment
gain understanding and skills related to integrating the MPT Model in the treatment of the person with the addiction

obtain information about the clinical needs of special populations of partners of sexual addicts
