To help a necrophiliac control their urges. The patient would be taught to become stimulated by fantasies which are appealing to them and then right before orgasm they think of a fantasy more acceptable to society. Which slowly teaches the necrophiliac to become stimulated by more socially accepted fantasies.
The cognitive perspective uses the same treatment as used in the behavioral perspective. After several treatments, depending on each patient for time, the necrophiliacs brain starts to adjust to the more socially accepted fantasies instead of necrophilia.
There may be traumatic events in the subconscious which may cause the necrophiliac to have urges. One way to reach these thoughts can be through hypnosis.
To receive treatment for necrophilia from a biological standpoint would be some medication. The medications the necrophiliac could take would be those which would reduce their sex drive.
It is believed that many people with paraphilias lack social skills. For the patients to be able to interact appropriately with people in their society, the patients can work with individuals, groups, and therapists to improve these skills. Some activities would include developing intimacy, carrying on casual conversations, and basic sex education.
