Online Assessments: The International Institute of Trauma And Addiction Professionals (IITAP) Has offered its CSAT (Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist) certification to counselors, clinical social workers and therapists for many years. Recently they have begun offering a PSAP (Pastoral Sexual Addiction Professional) certification to pastors who have the required training, complete their intense four modules of training and receive thirty hours of supervision from CSAT certified supervisors. Darrell began that process in June of 2017 and is now trained to interpret and help individuals with the assessments listed below. The descriptions are from IITAP’s Assessment Page.
- SDI–The Sexual Dependency Inventory (SDI) 4.0 is a battery of relevant tests organized into one cohesive report. Additionally, the SDI gathers data on various aspects of problematic sexual behavior including typical patterns of consequences, evolution and timing of behavior and thought patterns, as well as therapy readiness. Information is also collected and evaluated on drug use, masturbation, paraphilias, and internet usage behaviors. The results portrayed within the SDI are extremely important for clinicians when establishing a treatment plan for their clients. Having all of this information available in one report and being able to address 144 different sexual behaviors is essential when treating a complex process addiction such as sex addiction. Therapist and Client reports available. The SDI is available only to clinicians who are completing the CSAT training and certification program.
- PTSI-R–Typically, trauma tests and questionnaires are designed for a specific population in mind which may preclude certain clinical features or co-occurring populations. The Post-Traumatic Stress Index-Revised was designed to avoid these issues and assess for other manifestations of trauma, such depression. Another unique feature of the PTSI-R is that it includes previously excluded populations such as sexual addiction. The PTSI-R is not tied to any particular clinical theoretical orientation such as psychoanalytic, humanistic, or behavioral, and instead employs the most current research in the field of trauma from an interdisciplinary social neuroscience perspective.
- IPAST–The “Inventory for Partner Anxiety, Stress, and Trauma” is a battery of assessments that examine the partner’s traumatic reactions, family of origin, resiliency, and attachment styles. This assessment is appropriate for both men and women and provides clinicians with an overall look at the ways in which an addict’s behaviors has affected their client and his or her ability to overcome and move past the trauma.
- MAWASI–The Money and Work Adaptive Styles Index (MAWASI ®) evolved out the initial work of Bonnie DenDooven’s search to help others with issues surrounding money and work. Utilizing theories in attachment, neuromarketing, and behavioral economics Ms. Dendooven had originally designed the test with 9 subscales. A factor analysis revealed 12 subscales. These 12 subscales represent the various ways (behaviorally, emotionally, and cognitively) that money and/or work has affected an individual’s life. Moreover, they show how the individual has adapted his or her life to those thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
