The Addictions Curriculum
BAD BOYS (This program is free -- our gift to you)
SEXUAL ADDICTION or ENTITLEMENT?
Truth is stranger than fiction. We’ve seen a president get impeached after having—or not having –“sex” -- in the Oval Office with a young intern. We’ve seen the best golfer in a generation become a broken man after the discovery of his outrageous infidelities. His now ex-wife wound up with $110 million dollars and he hasn’t won a tournament since. Then there’s the now ex- governor of New York, who spent tens of thousands of dollars on prostitutes.
Wait! There's more! The governor of California, who has a history of groping woman, was discovered to have had a now teen-aged child by his housekeeper. And two notorious European satyrs have been in the news: one, the elderly prime minister of Italy, is said to have flown prostitutes on his government paid airplane, among other outrageous behavior, and of course, there is the Former International Monetary Fund chief who was accused of attempted rape. And how can we ignore the Congressman who posted photos of a key part of his anatomy, and whose unfortunate surname is also the nickname of said body part. As they say, “You can’t make these things up!”
Are these men of privilege and power whose narcissism and grandiosity backfired? A dream team of lechers? Or are they tortured souls, looking for love and connection in all the wrong places?
Here to explain the differences between the two situations is Sharon O’Hara, Clinical Director of the Sexual Recovery Institute in Los Angeles.
1. Understand the role of entitlement in the sexual acting out of powerful figures
2. Discover why sex addicts become increasingly caught up in destructive sexual behaviors
3. Understand why the Addictions model is the treatment of choice.
