I've read several books on addiction, trauma etc.. I am a therapist with a specialty in trauma and this book is by far the best I've read. An excellent and easy to understand read for professionals and laypersons. This book also explains how growing up in dysfunctional homes leads to low self-esteem, shame, anger, relationship issues, etc... which has been said 1,000 times, but her presentation is inspiring, fresh and very beneficial. This book is deep yet practical, which is extremely rare in books of this nature. Highly recommended!!!!

This text provides insights into sexual compulsivity, from affairs to internet pornography and why this happens to some. Maureen incorporates the works of Pia Mellody and Patrick Carnes into her book.

As a physician and intuitive I rarely find a psychology or counseling book that I can completely agree with. There are some things that scientific minds take as fact, that unfortunately leave out the aspect of the soul. Maureen manages to give a heartfelt account of her own trauma, addiction, and healing by telling personal stories, client stories, giving practical scientific models, and addressing the deep needs of the spirit. Bravo!! No one can be healed on simply a physical level... there is a profound impact on all victims of trauma on parts of us we cannot see.

Her definitions of child abuse were enlightening. Parents really need to be aware of their roles as nurturers to their children. The way an adult can comprehend and make sense of a situation is much different than that of a child. Things parents or adults may perceive as harmless can really reek havoc on a child's self esteem, self worth, relating abilities and later on-- their own sexual expression. Using true cases as examples, you can see how these traumatic events evolve into compulsive, addictive behaviors and faulty ways of thinking. The person cannot help but try to undo these traumatic events by recreating them again in their daily lives. It is all consuming.

Sex addiction does exist. It is a real thing. Very few people talk about it or know how to help, and this is unfair to the many who suffer from it.

I have not found a book that speaks of erectile problems with sexual addiction yet. I have noticed that this is a common consequence of the sex addiction. Mentally, spiritually, emotionally... the body is not on board with what the addicted person is doing.

if you want examples of people that suffer from sex addiction and the things that they do then this is for you.(If you are reading this book you already know what the addiction is like) However if you are looking for help with the addiction don't waste your time. The only helpful part of the book was the index of all of the "anonymous groups" That list is available online...use Google it's free.
