The Center for Intimacy Recovery is hosting another of our virtual 6-week groups for men who want to better understand their destructive sexual patterns and learn concrete tools to develop a healthier relationship with sex and intimacy.
This psycho-educational group is an opportunity for men to:
Learn concrete tools to help stop destructive sexual behaviors
Learn how to be more relational
Connect childhood experiences & messages to their beliefs and behaviors in adult relationships
Examine unhealthy sexual behaviors
Address their sense of loneliness
Discover more about themselves
This introductory group focuses on helping those who are asking themselves:
"Why do I seem to struggle so much in relationships?"
“Should I be concerned about my sexual behaviors or use of pornography?”
"I'm so successful in other areas of my life but at times feel clueless in relationships."
"Why am I not able to stop doing things that hurt me or my loved ones?”
"Why am I having so much trouble finding a meaningful relationship?"
"Why do I often feel like I'm on the outside looking in?"
"Why do I keep picking the 'wrong' kind of people?"
"How can I do something more meaningful than Grindr or other apps?"
Week 1: Who am I and Why am I Here?
Week 2: Intimacy Shapers: Attachment, Core Needs of Children & Building Blocks of Intimacy
Week 3: How Do We Avoid Intimacy in Relation to Ourselves and Others?
