Here are six articles I read this week that I thought were worth sharing. By the way, if you come across something – or have written something – that you’d like to share, Let me know.

  1. Great article about the roots of sex addiction stemming from childhood trauma. It doesn’t touch on abandonment trauma (good things that should have happened, but didn’t), only the trauma of abuse (bad things that shouldn’t have happened, but did). But it’s still very good.
  2. Worth a quick read for parents: “Six skills children need to develop to keep them out of addiction.”
  3. Is Sex Addiction Real – the tired arguments come up again in this article from the Vancouver Sun … what’s interesting is a discussion about the possible inclusion of the “hypersexual disorder” diagnosis as part of the new DSM (psychiatric diagnostic manual for therapists).
  4. How the New DSM Gets Addiction Right – great article from opinion section of New York Times online. It gives an overview of changing understanding of addiction.
  5. Great article from Sheila Gregoire written to wives about things they can do to build relational intimacy. She calls it the “21 Day Challenge,” and there are great insights for men here too.
  6. Article on female sex addiction – Whether due to abuse or abandonment, “being known” (aka intimacy) is at the core of female sex addiction
