Current literature and research related to online problematic sexual behaviour will be presented, as well as a model for understanding cybersex user typologies – including both healthy and problematic online sexual behaviour. Issues related to online child pornography and the implications for mental health professionals will also be introduced.

Name of Presenter
Karoline Bischof, Zürich, Switzerland
Zurich Institute for Clinical Sexology and Sexual Therapy ZISS
Sexocorporel is a practically oriented, comprehensive model of the physical (genital), emotional and cognitive components enabling a fulfilled sexuality. At its core is the close neurophysiological interaction of brain and body by which the musculoskeletal system influences sexual function and its related emotions, fantasies and experiences. The way we move our bodies during sexual arousal and hence our experience of sex can be successfully modified through learning steps.
This workshop addresses persons wishing to increase their competencies in sexual counseling. It also encourages the enrichment of personal erotic abilities. The theoretical framework is overviewed, and in various exercises, participants can experience the brain-body unity, sample therapeutic interventions and acquire new therapeutic skills.
Workshop 7 (WS7)
Sexual Disorders And Sexoanalysis
Name of Presenter
Domenico Trotta, Salerno, Italy
President of ISA, Institute of Sexoanalysis
Doctor of Medicine and Sexual Psychotherapist
ACTS, Association for Clinics and Therapy in Sexology, ASL Salerno2 Internal Medicine
The sexoanalytic approach is a sexual development theory as well as a clinical and therapeutic approach specifically designed for the treatment of sexual disorders. The nature of the sexual development, the notion of gender identity and its vulnerability and the relationship with the other and the other sex are key issues of the theoretical sexoanalytical framework. The study of sexual imaginary and sexual fantasies and dreams has special attention in sexoanalysis. Sexual fantasies and imagination are also observed in their relation of continuity or discontinuity with the sexual behavior. Sexual disturbances (sexual dysfunctions, gender identity problems, intersexual disphories, love disorders) are not considered as isolated sexual symptoms but on the broader context of the individual sexual structure and his sexual specificity. Sexual disorders are considered to be, in many cases, consequences of conscious and unconscious anxieties and conflicts. Workshops on sexoanalysis introduce participants to the main concepts of sexoanalysis.
Workshop 8 (WS8)
The functional-sexological treatment of premature ejaculation
Name of Presenter
François de Carufel, PhD, Braine l'Alleud, Belgium
Doctor of psychology and sex therapist
Founder of the Functional Sex Therapy
Clinical Director of the Functional-Sexology Unit
This workshop provides the therapists with the following knowledge and skills:
- Theoretical fundamentals of the Functional Sex Therapy
- Man’s sexual excitement curve zones
- Definition and causes of premature ejaculation
- Structure of the functional-sexological treatment
- Informational content of the treatment
- Corporal content of the treatment
- Pedagogical techniques to teach the components of the treatment
The functional-sexological treatment for premature ejaculation is an alternative to pharmacological treatments. Based on learning, it gives excellent results. First, it helps the couple to prolong the duration of intercourse. Second, it does not need interrupting the course of sexual activities like with the squeeze technique. Third, it fosters positive feelings and erotic exchanges during intercourse. Fourth, it can be followed by the man alone or by men without partner. Finally, no technical intervention is required on the part of the partner in order for the man to control himself. As such, the functional-sexological treatment appeals to a vast segment of the population.
