Maladaptive sexual behavior is sexual behavior that has become unhealthy and sometimes even criminal. It is behavior that causes harm. MSB can perpetuate from sex addiction, or it can be the result of abuse or other traumatic experience. This may also be referred to as problematic sexual behavior (PSB).
Counseling for MSB requires the counselor to implement specific skills and knowledge. While the counseling process requires time, growth and healing can occur as the client discovers their ability to engage in safe and healthy sexual behavior. Praus counselors work with our clients to build a solid foundation whereupon healthy sexual behavior is developed, and a safe, healthy lifestyle can be maintained.
