Frotteuristic Disorder Treatment
About our Frotteuristic Disorder Treatment
I have helped many clients who have frotteuristic disorder. It is a not the most common disorder in caseloads such as mine, but caseloads such as mine typically have a person who engages in this. There are some variations seen in this behavior, but all versions of it involve seriously distorted thinking, distortions that enable and promote this behavior. Any person with any form of frotteuristic disorder has views of this behavior and views of his victims 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 frotteuristic disorder tells them is false, thereby making the client safer from this harmful and self destructive behavior. I have had countless clients correct their distorted thinking, and therefore eliminate the behavior that that distorted thinking creates.
Below is some explanation of what frotteurism is. Frotteurism is touching or rubbing against a nonconsenting person. 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.
