Frotteuristic Disorder Treatment in NYC
Frotteuristic Disorder Counseling
Frotteurism is touching or rubbing against a nonconsenting person.
I have helped many clients who have frotteuristic disorder. There are some variations seen in frotteurism, but all versions of it involve seriously distorted thinking that enable and promote this behavior. Those with frotteuristic disorder view their behavior and their victim’s experience which are very inaccurate, and which help him act out.
I have helped clients with frotteuristic disorder correct their self deception and see the misinformation their disorder tells them is false, thereby making the client safer from this harmful and self destructive behavior.
Treating frotteurism involves using specialist psychotherapy to correct thinking errors and and build up other parts of the persons life to have them not act out. A frotteur is person who rubs against a nonconsenting person for their sexual enjoyment. Frotteurism is a type of paraphilia. Usually, this behavior is a man rubbing his clothed penis against a nonconsenting person, sometimes the male has his penis outside his clothes. Persons with this disorder often, but not always, have some history with voyeurism and exhibitionism.
