Who Should Attend: This class is for clinicians who are or will be working with female sex and love addicts, or with women who may be struggling with their cyber romance, cybersex, or pornography use.
Navigating cybersexuality is a fact of modern life for all genders, and an increasing number of women – especially younger women — struggle to do so with clarity and integrity. It’s never been more important for clinicians to understand this new cultural landscape and the pressures faced by women in it. Lightened with humor and three heartwarming case studies with successful outcomes, this webinar will both inspire and equip you with effective, female-informed approaches to treatment planning and clinical care.
Participants will learn the definitions, overlap, and distinctions between cyber romance, cybersex, and pornography addiction that typically occur in women.
Participants will receive and comprehend how to use an assessment form to evaluate the presence and severity of compulsive cyber romance, cybersex, and pornography addiction that is tailored to the use patterns most commonly reported by women. This form may be adapted for participants’ specific practice and work with other populations.
Participants will understand three key methods to intervene when reported cyber romance, cybersex and pornography use has reached high-risk, abusive, or illegal levels.
Participants will receive practical treatment instruction via detailed clinical case studies of three women, from presenting problem, to “defining sobriety,” through treatment struggles, and concluding with stability/resolution.
Note: No sexually explicit imagery will be used in this presentation, though some descriptions of intense situations/behaviors will be included as part of the case studies.
