Emotional sobriety can only take shape after a period of sexual sobriety. This interactive presentation will take a closer look at the healing elements of emotional sobriety as well as specific everyday strategies. When an individual feels more regulated, resourceful and resilient, the likelihood of relapse diminishes. Therefore, practicing emotional sobriety reduces the vulnerability to relapse.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define the term emotional sobriety and describe its usefulness in recovery from sex addiction.
  • List 3 strategies for a client to move towards achieving emotional sobriety.
  • Recall and distinguish the difference between sexual sobriety and emotional sobriety.
