The Dr. Robin Zasio Show “Mental Health Matters”

15th October 2016 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Topic: How Sexual Addiction (and any addiction) Undermines Healthy Intimacy

It is estimated that nearly 12 million people in the United States suffer from sex addiction. Usually one engages in compulsive sexual behavior to cope, self-medicate, or escape from emotional or psychological pain as a result of loneliness, boredom, stress, anxiety, depression, anger, or abuse and neglect. Casual viewing of pornography, for example, does not start as an obsession, but rather a way to self-medicate from the stresses of life. Because of powerful effects on the brain, casual viewing can easily turn into a destructive addiction. Kevin Phillips, an ordained minister, will discuss how addiction can reap havoc in relationships, what can be done to prevent it from happening, and defines the five essential elements of healthy intimacy.
