The Sexual Behaviours Clinic (SBC) is a multi-disciplinary team, including social work, psychology, psychiatry, and sexology.
Our treatment approach follows a Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) model, and may include aspects of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), the Good Lives Model, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and relapse prevention. We work with our patients to develop treatment goals, with a focus on living a healthy, balanced, and safe lifestyle.
We work from a non-judgmental and inclusive framework. We also work with diverse cultural and linguistic communities. CAMH interpretation services are provided for patients as needed for assessment and treatment.
Are you concerned about your sexual interest in children? Are you worried about your use of child sexual exploitation material (often called child pornography)? Do you have concerns about crossing boundaries with children?
