Understanding Sex and Porn Addiction - Peter Watts

This workshop, for counsellors and pastoral carers working with Christians who struggle with sex or porn addiction, will explain the addiction from a biopsychosocial perspective and explore different perspectives on dependency.  Ultimately only the 'addict' can decide if their behaviour is 'addictive' or out of control but this intense and information packed day will help those in a supportive role to guide people towards that decision.  Practical tools will also be provided along with guidance for appropriate referral. The aims are

  • to provide a definition of sex and porn addicition
  • to help counsellors understand sex and porn addiction from a biopsychosocial perspective
  • to understand underlying causes and contributing factors
  • to provide tools to help clients self diagnose either an active addiction or their 'at risk' behaviours
  • to provide an understanding of the cycle of addiction
  • to provide an overview of treatment options for those with addiction
  • to provide experiental opportunities to practise assessmenht skills
  • to provide counsellors with the tools to support clients who may be going through addiction treatment
