rob-weissFort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) October 15, 2014 – A blue-ribbon slate of internationally renowned psychotherapists and addiction experts will gather in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, November 12 to 14 for the Second International Conference on Sex and Love Addiction. The conference features keynote presentations from a host of pioneers in the field of sex and love addiction, including Patrick Carnes, PhD, founder of the International Institute for Trauma and Addiction Professionals (IITAP), Stefanie Carnes, PhD, renowned author and president of IITAP, and Robert Weiss, LCSW, CSAT-S, founder of the Sexual Recovery Institute in Los Angeles and senior vice president of clinical development for Elements Behavioral Health.

“This is going to be a uniquely enlightening conference, and it’s coming at a critical time,” says Weiss. “Some of the best minds from around the world will be sharing what they’ve learned about both sex and online/porn addictions, from research and clinical settings. We know so much more today about sexual addiction than we did just a few years ago; there’s a lot of ground to cover.” The theme of the conference is “The Changing Architecture of Addictive Desire, Trauma and Attachment: Families, Children and Partners.”

Weiss, an expert in the relationship between digital technology and sexuality, will present “Sex, Tech, Intimacy and Infidelity: The Effect of Social Media and Technology on Cheating, Intimacy Disorders and Sex Addiction.” Dr. Patrick Carnes, who is honorary chair of the event, will present “As the Paradigm Crumbles: Sciences Struggles with Addiction” and “Evolution of Evolution: Will Addiction Change the Species—What We Must Do Now.” Dr. Stefanie Carnes will discuss “Getting Honest in Recovery: Facilitating a Clinical Disclosure.”
