I am a Massey University student conducting research through the School of Psychology as part of a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. I am seeking participants for a treatment outcome study on out-of-control sexual behaviour (OCSB).

What is OCSB? It is commonly called “sexual addiction’’ and can include a wide range of sexual behaviours that may cause distress to you and/or your partner, you may have tried to stop or cut back on but have been unable to, and this is negatively impacting on your life (i.e., social/work/relationships/finances).

What does the study involve? The study involves an assessment and treatment plan that will be individualised to you. Weekly face-to-face appointments with a clinical psychologist will help you reduce your OCSB and there will be some anonymous questionnaires to fill in each week that will help determine whether the treatment has helped you. These findings will be written up as part of a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology thesis with no identifying details about you included.

Who can apply to participate? If you are a man who is aged 18 or older, you think you have OCSB, you live in the Auckland/Palmerston North region, and you can attend twelve, hour-long appointments at the fee of $185 per week then you are eligible to apply for participation. To find out more information confidentially please contact OCSB@live.com and you an information sheet will be sent to your email address.

This project has been reviewed and approved by the Health and Disability Ethics Committee, Central Region: 11/09/050.
