Internet Porn Addiction: Is This Even A Thing?

Presented by N. Ben Licata, LCSW, CSAT-S

Open to Social Workers, Counselors, and other mental healthcare providers.

Participants will earn 2 Clinical CE Hours for attending this event.

Description: Often overlooked and underassessed as a taboo topic, pornography use among clients has become more accessible as the digital age has opened the door to newer forms of compulsive behaviors. While helping professionals remain vigilant to more common causes of negative symptoms, those causes that may be considered on the fringe can be easily overlooked. However, the effects of problematic pornography use on our clients and their families remain nonetheless real, and can have negative impacts on the outcomes of treatment.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand what internet porn compulsivity and addiction are.
  • Assess and diagnose internet pornography addiction.
  • Learn how internet porn impacts the user.
  • Learn how to talk with clients about their porn usage.
  • Learn the skills necessary to treat this addiction.
