Most therapy criticizes porn use while legitimizing the grievances of the porn consumer's partner. As patients struggle around issues of privacy, trust, fidelity and autonomy, remaining non-judgmental can be difficult. This workshop focuses on treating intrapsychic conflicts and power struggles over porn use. We'll explore how conflict about pornography is often used to avoid confronting a sexual relationship's deficits; how one or both partners may be acting out body image issues; and why "porn addiction" is not a helpful concept.

Part of the Clinician's Corner category on our BizVision partner site.
