Out of the Shadows: Understanding Sexual Addiction

Out of the Shadows: Understanding Sexual Addiction

by Patrick Carnes

One of the first comprehensive works on sexual addiction, and written by a pioneer in its treatment, this book addresses a disorder that many people would rather avoid discussing or acknowledging.  It dispels myths, rebukes biases, and informs the reader not only on what sexual addiction really is, but also on how to overcome it.  This third edition has been revised and updated to include the latest research and to address the exploding phenomenon of cybersex addiction.  It explains the danger signs, dynamics and consequences of sexual addiction, and combines practical wisdom, spiritual clarity, and psychological research and treatment methods to lead those that might have this disorder back into the light and fullness of life.
