With the official release of the eleventh edition of the World Health Organization’s International Classification of Diseases, there are now three recognized compulsive/addictive behavior disorders: gambling disorder, gaming disorder, and compulsive sexual behavior disorder. Two of these diagnoses—gaming disorder and compulsive sexual behavior disorder—are new additions to the ICD, and are already rife with controversy and debates. The present workshop will provide practitioners with information about these new disorders, discuss the proper assessment of these disorders, introduce evidence-based treatments for these disorders, and explore burgeoning controversies regarding these disorders. Skill Level: Intermediate
