Abstract
This concept paper explores the influences of trauma and attachment with brain development and sexual dependency. Attachment failures in childhood and the development of attachment styles will be acknowledged as potentially predisposing individuals towards adapting sexually dependent coping strategies. Treatment modalities involving psychosomatic processing as discussed provide substantial promise for addressing clients with sexual dependence. Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Therapy (AEDP) is an emerging approach which provides emotional and experiential healing while optimizing brain plasticity. This therapeutic approach to trauma acknowledges the deeper emotional wounds which commonly underlie addictive behaviours. By addressing emotional dysregulation within the safety of the therapeutic alliance, therapists can facilitate emotionally-corrective and reparative experiences. Sexual dependency treatment methods will be further discussed, while incorporating practical examples of these up-and-coming techniques.
