Working with Internet Porn Addiction – with Aileen George

June 13, 2020 @ 10:00 am-4:30 pm

£90 – £99

Introduction

The way that we use porn has changed somewhat since the mid 19thcentury. Over the years it has evolved from risqué pictures (such as those in the Kama Sutra) and literary descriptions (such as Lady Chatterley’s Lover, which was banned for many years) through soft core, top shelf magazines to what is now a highly lucrative industry. When the internet and high speed broadband first appeared the business model of the porn industry changed, moving from pay per view to streaming of free, explicit videos.

Currently the only education regarding porn addiction is too little, too late. This means that as therapists we are sometimes likely to be working
with this issue unknowingly. Also, there is usually huge shame and stigma attached to porn use and this prevents clients from being aware of the extent of the problem and prevents them from disclosing. Clients will often present with the symptoms of porn addiction, therefore a good understanding of the issue can help us to assist our clients to identify the underlying issue.

Topics we will cover in this workshop:

  • Can porn be addictive?
  • Brain changes in porn users
  • When/How clients might present – assessment
  • Ethical considerations
  • Focus of therapy
  • Opportunity, Attachment & Trauma
  • The cycle of addiction
  • Breaking the cycle & rewiring the brain
  • Support & Relapse Prevention
  • Partners – relational trauma
