Internet Porn Addiction

In this new world of technology, there are those students – and staff members – who become obsessed with viewing internet porn.  It’s so easy, it’s so private, and it is so very seductive.  Statistics are frightening, because particularly for students, the obsession creates a myriad of negative self-esteem issues and has a profound negative effect on the health of their future intimate relationships.  For many youth, the conflict with their family’s values drives them to self-loathing and to risk of suicide.  Youth who visit porn sites are much more vulnerable to being “found” by pedafiles, increasing their risk of being sexually abused.

This workshop examines trends and risks, and provides a framework for schools to begin to address this very difficult issue.

Half-day workshop.
