over 150 Professionals During Sex Addiction and Recovery Seminar in Okinawa,
Japan Hosted by the Family Advocacy Program
LOS ANGELES--(Business Wire)--
The Sexual Recovery Institute has announced that Founding Director Robert Weiss
will conduct a Professionals Training and Program Development seminar for the
U.S. Marine's Family Advocacy in Okinawa, Japan this week. This series of
trainings will take place December 1, 2009 - December 3, 2009 on the U.S. base
in Japan and is expected to draw an audience of over 150 professionals from
around the world. 

The Army's Family Advocacy Program works with individuals and families to
strengthen family relationships using education and prevention tactics. Weiss
will specifically train counselors and specialists in the area of sex and porn
addiction in the military along with concerns related to sexual betrayal and
infidelity in order to better handle such issues. 

"I feel privileged to be able to speak in front of such a large audience on such
an important topic," remarked Weiss. "Despite being a touchy subject, the rise
of sexual addiction in the military is an important issue and one worthy of an
open dialogue." 

Earlier this month, Weiss spoke to a group of psychotherapy and addiction
treatment professionals at the VA in Los Angeles, California regarding sexual
addiction and porn addiction in the military. During his speech, Weiss presented
a paper by Michael D. Howard on the rise of sexual addiction and substance abuse
problems many soldiers are dealing with after returning home from Iraq. 

Robert Weiss has previously spoken on the topic of sexual addiction in media
appearances such as ABC's 20/20, the Discovery Health Channel and the Oprah
Winfrey show. He has also previously trained the Army on understanding sex and
pornography addiction through various sessions held in Frankfurt, Germany and
San Antonio, Texas.
