Supporting YOU to Feel: Confident & Competent; Fresh & Flexible; Practical & Effective in your work with women
Where do helping professionals go to learn about female-informed care for sex, love/relationship, and porn addiction? Finally, some new resources are almost here!
This program is under development, and will include modules on best practices for care for both individual and group treatment for women. Materials can benefit clients of all genders and issues, but were especially designed for the unique needs of female sex, love/relationship, and porn addicts.
The Best Practices for FSLA Clinical Care program will include:
Clear, enthusiastic training videos taught by Staci Sprout, LICSW, CSAT, based on her training, what worked for her in therapy/recovery, and over a decade of direct clinical experience working with women in individual and group therapy for sex/love/porn addiction.
Innovative, effective individual practice tools, for example How to Help Your Clients Transform Negative/Harmful Sexual Fantasy, Resentment Reduction: How to Help Your Clients Transform Rage into Empowerment, and Wound to Wisdom: How to Help Your Clients Transform Grief.
Therapy/Treatment Group Outlines for Group Facilitators, offered into three phases (beginning, stable, advanced) to reflect and nurture how women's group needs evolve over time.
Written materials you can use as handouts or clinical guides.
Practice forms like Informed Consent for Groups you can adapt with your letterhead.
And much more!
