Tesi sexual addiction
Sono nuova del forum...
Mi sto accingendo a svolgere una tesi di II livello sulla sexual addiction e sul disturbo ossessivo compulsivo. Sarà una ricerca sperimentale... Volevo sapere se qualcuno può darmi una mano per la bibliografia e se conoscete una banca dati da cui poter scaricare i full text senza andare per forza all'univ!
Vi ringrazio moltissimo per l'aiuto!

Assessing Readiness to Change among Clients Seeking Help for Hypersexual Behavior.
By: Reid, Rory C.. Sexual Addiction & Compulsivity, Jul2007, Vol. 14 Issue 3, p167-186, 20p, 2 charts Abstract: Mental health professionals may erroneously assume that clients seeking help for hypersexual behavior are ready to begin working on their issues at the outset of treatment. Prochaska and DiClemente (e.g., 1983, 1984) proposed the transtheoretical model (TTM) stages of change to advance their belief that clients move through several stages when attempting to alter specific target behaviors. If a clinician gets ahead of a client by administering interventions that are improperly matched with the client's readiness to change, treatment may be prematurely terminated or high levels of resistance may be encountered during therapy. In this study, clients (N = 67) who were referred for treatment in a specialty outpatient clinic for hypersexual behavior completed the Sexual Compulsivity Scale (Kalichman et al., 1994; Kalichman & Rompa, 1995, 2001) and the Stages of Change Scale (McConnaughy, DiClemente, Prochaska, & Velicer, 1989; McConnaughy, Prochaska, & Velicer, 1983). The data collected from these measures revealed that 70% (n = 47) of clients who expressed an interest in receiving help with issues related to hypersexuality also had high levels of ambivalence about the changes they desired to make and that individuals with ADHD were significantly (chi-square, p ≤ .001) more likely to be in the contemplation stage than subjects presenting with alternative diagnoses. Implications for these finding are discussed and suggestions for future research are offered. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR] DOI: 10.1080/10720160701480204 (AN 26099807)
Borderline Personality Traits in Individuals with Compulsive Sexual Behavior.
By: Lloyd, Martin; Raymond, Nancy C.; Miner, Michael H.; Coleman, Eli. Sexual Addiction & Compulsivity, Jul2007, Vol. 14 Issue 3, p187-206, 20p, 4 charts Abstract: Medical charts of 85 patients diagnosed with Compulsive Sexual Behavior (CSB) were reviewed to assess for symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). One patient met criteria for BPD. Participants presented with a mean of one BPD symptom. The most commonly observed symptoms were "impulsivity in at least two areas," "affective instability" and "feelings of emptiness." Each symptom was broken down into a set of traits or symptom indicators. The most commonly observed symptom indicators were persistent dysphoric mood, unsafe sex practices, substance abuse, and negative self-image. The evidence does not suggest a strong relationship between BPD and CSB. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR] DOI: 10.1080/10720160701480337 (AN 26099806)
The Consequences of Compulsive Sexual Behavior: The Preliminary Reliability and Validity of the Compulsive Sexual Behavior Consequences Scale.
By: Muench, Frederick; Morgenstern, Jon; Hollander, Eric; Irwin, Thomas; O'Leary, Ann; Parsons, Jeffrey T.; Wainberg, Milton L.; Lai, Betty. Sexual Addiction & Compulsivity, Jul2007, Vol. 14 Issue 3, p207-220, 14p, 3 charts Abstract: The consequences of any excessive behavior can serve as a proxy indicator of problem severity. This appears especially salient for the diagnosis of non-paraphilic compulsive sexual behavior (CSB) because of the influence of societal norms on the pathologizing of frequent consensual ego-syntonic sexual behavior. The current study is a preliminary examination of the psychometric properties, descriptive features, concurrent validity, and ability to detect change over time of a measure designed to assess the consequences of non-paraphilic CSB. The sample consisted of 34 (26 end of treatment) gay and bisexual men enrolled in a double-blind placebo-controlled medication trial testing the efficacy of an SSRI in reducing CSB symptoms. Results indicate that the measure demonstrated good internal and test-retest reliability, concurrent validity, and was able to detect change in symptoms over the course of the 12-week period. Items related to intimate relations were most resistant to change and items related to intrapersonal conflict and impulse control were most likely to change. No differences existed in the reduction of consequences between medication and placebo groups. Consequences were only moderately correlated with frequency measures suggesting these constructs should be examined separately. Taken together, results suggest that measuring consequences can reveal important clues into the domains most affected by CSB, provide clues into those domains that are resistant to change, and aid in individualized treatment planning.

Internet Use among Gay and Bisexual Men with Compulsive Sexual Behavior.
By: Parsons, J. T.; Severino, J. P.; Grov, C.; Bimbi, D. S.; Morgenstern, J.. Sexual Addiction & Compulsivity, Jul2007, Vol. 14 Issue 3, p239-256, 18p, 3 charts, 1 graph, 1 bw Abstract: This analysis sought to explore the role the Internet played in the lives and behaviors of 183 gay and bisexual men who identified their sex lives as "spinning out of control." Participants for this study had enrolled in a multi-method community study of compulsive sexual behavior whose purpose was to investigate the nature, course and antecedents of sexual compulsivity among gay and bisexual men. Most men in the sample reported using the Internet and, the greater their reported use, the more likely they were to identify their use as a problem. Moreover, men who identified their Internet use as a problem were more likely to have sought help through 12-step programs. Data from the current study suggest the Internet may play a role in sexual risk-taking behaviors of sexually compulsive gay and bisexual men. It seems this connection to risk-taking behaviors may be different for HIV-positive and HIV-negative men. Understanding the role of the Internet in the sexual lives of sexually compulsive gay and bisexual men and the relationships between HIV-risk taking and Internet use in this population provides a foundation to better design/implement effective HIV education and prevention. Although the Internet is a potential problem or trigger for sexually compulsive men, it also provides researchers, public health professionals, and clinicians with a powerful tool for HIV educational outreach, interventions, and prevention.

Escaping the Pain: Examining the Use of Sexually Compulsive Behavior to Avoid the Traumatic Memories of Combat.
By: Howard, Michael D.. Sexual Addiction & Compulsivity, Apr2007, Vol. 14 Issue 2, p77-94, 18p Abstract: Studies suggest that as many as 30% of U.S. service members are returning from Iraq with stress-related mental health problems. Between 10-15% of troops leaving theatre have been diagnosed with combat-related post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Plagued by nightmares, flashbacks, and a host of family and work-related problems, these individuals will often turn to mood-altering substances and behaviors as an escape from their memories. This article examines the use of compulsive sexual behavior as a means of escaping the memories of combat. A case study will illustrate theoretical aspects of addiction, as well as critical intervention issues related to the underlying trauma.
