May 20 (Fri) 2 pm – 6 pm n Integrated Approach To Understanding And Treating Porn-Related Issues – Diane Gleim, LMFT, CST, CST-S

In the 21st century, pornography has become the lightning rod where sexuality, technology, and morality all collide. As a result, it is a confusing subject for most, including the mental health profession. Our profession marginalizes sex: there is and has been a profound erotophobia across the field for generations. Furthermore, it has been difficult for our profession to see the role morality plays in our understanding and treatment of human sexuality issues. Current research shows that therapist training in sexuality is often limited in scope and depth and this directly impacts a clinician’s comfort and competence in working with any sexual issue. Without critical thinking and additional specialized training, therapists can default to sex-negative, pop culture-informed, or traditional gendered stereotypes about all things sex. This of course includes ideas about pornography. The thoughtful therapist is aware of this but may not know what else to think, where to turn for more information, or how else to help their clients when pornography is the stated problem.

In this three-hour intermediate-level course, attendees will first get a primer on porn literacy – a new way to conceptualize and relate to pornography without pathologizing or shaming. Recent research about pornography viewers and a client-centered perspective on pornography will be also presented. Attendees may find their previous assumptions challenged and their biases identified. Then, attendees will learn tools for their sex-positive toolkit to help both individuals and couples when pornography is causing conflict.
