ounselors should use appropriate treatment strategies when working with clients experiencing sexual dysfunctions, compulsions, and/or aIDictions. Selected interventions should be appropriate to the needs of the client and be grounded in a theoretical and/or empirical basis. Therefore, counselors should carefully develop assessment and treatment plans to help them gather information about the client’s unique background characteristics and guide them in their work with these clients.

Support the elements of your plan with evidence-based research.
Support your Assignment with specific references to all resources used in its preparation. You are to provide a reference list for all resources, including those in the Learning Resources for this course.
