Helping Clients with Compulsive Sexual Behavior Disorder
Location: UNR Redfield Campus, 18600 Wedge Parkway, Reno, NV 89511
3/5/2020

The World Health Organization (WHO) has classified Compulsive Sexual Behavior Disorder (CSBD) as an impulse control disorder for the ICD-11. Clients seeking help for CSBD exhibit characteristics similar to what has been labeled “behavioral addictions” including 1) diminished control over sexual thoughts, urges, and behavior, 2) significant consequences and distress related to sexual behavior, 3) multiple unsuccessful attempts to reduce or stop compulsive sexual behavior. This 3 hour presentation will discuss assessment, common associated features, and treatment of CSBD. The most up-to-date research on CSBD will be discussed with a focus on clinical applications of findings in the social science literature. Finally, providers will learn how to do a differential diagnostic evaluation from other sexual behavior problems such as the non-consensual behaviors often associated with the #MeToo movement.

Improving MAT Access and Quality Through Collaborative Care: The CoOp Model
Location: Online
Anytime

Medication assisted treatments (MAT) enhance opioid use disorder treatment efficacy, yet remain underutilized. Opioid treatment programs (OTPs) can now dispense buprenorphine or naltrexone as well as methadone. Collaboration between OTPs and office-based buprenorphine (OBB) prescribers constitutes a cohesive model providing access to comprehensive services, and encouraging MAT prescribing. During this webinar Dr. Stoller will focus on a model of care he coined “Collaborative Opioid Prescribing (CoOP),” linking OTP expertise with OBB prescribers. The OTP provides assessment, buprenorphine induction, and counseling, while OBB physicians provide ongoing buprenorphine prescribing and somatic or psychiatric care. An adaptive stepped care model adjusts counseling intensity and medication parameters (OBB prescription vs. OTP dispensing; duration of prescriptions). Supporting OBB providers in this manner may encourage MAT provision and access, while concurrently improving treatment outcome. Providing a broad spectrum of medical, social, and recovery services through coordinated care can enhance health outcomes and address unmet patient needs.
