In this episode of Sex, Addiction, and the Missing Peace, host Ken Donaldson talks about some of the controversies over the labeling of Compulsive Sexual Behavior Disorder versus Sexual Addiction. Ken reviews content directly from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), the "bible" of all psychological diagnoses used in the U.S., and from the American Psychiatric Association's (the APA; they are the authors of the DSM) website and compares and contrasts some confusing terminologies and semantics.
Then Ken looks at the diagnosis of Compulsive Sexual Behavior Disorder, which is from the World Health Organization's (WHO) International Classification of Diseases (ICD), and compares the languaging differences and similarities.
Ken reviews the symptoms from the diagnoses of Gambling Disorder and Substance Use Disorder directly from the APA website, showing how strikingly similar they are to that of WHO's ICD.
All of this backstory is to ask the question: Why has there so much time and energy spent on arguing about the labels when this same time and energy could be used more constructively on prevention and early intervention of sexual addiction?
