How can you help as a parent, and how can therapy be a key piece in putting the puzzle back together?
Pornography and other Sexual Compulsions
One way or another, like a train hitting you from behind, you may have learned that your daughter has been regularly viewing pornography or participating in other sexualized behaviors. How can this be? We assure you that you are not alone.
Society has generally seen pornography as something that only affects men. But many studies, along with apparent cultural trends, are proving that an increasing percentage of women, especially young women, are seeking out and viewing pornographic material.*
Young women in particular experience high levels of shame in regards to pornography and other sexual compulsions. Our non-shame-based approach is essential to helping her feel safe and willing to do the work required to get back to a place where she has the confidence and skills she needs to be her best self.
