MEN'S SEXUALITY GROUP THERAPY
Thursdays 6:30 - 8:30pm
Location: Office of Dr. Joe Kort & Associates
Facilitated by Felix Paulick, MSW, MBA [for more info click here]
This therapy group is designed to help men increase awareness of how their sexuality developed and how best to integrate it with a healthy, fulfilling life. It will help men resolve sexual behaviors that are interfering in their lives.
Sexual Addiction/compulsion is rarely about sex, but rather about early childhood trauma. Often it is based in childhood sexual, physical and emotional abuse or neglect. The individual is usually terrified of adult intimacy and uses the sexual acting out behaviors as a way to avoid it unconsciously.
The issues we examine and help solve include:
Examining the negative effects of unresolved family-of-origin issues in childhood, which are currently interfering in men's adult lives.
Pornography use and Internet cybersex
Past and present abuse (sexual, physical, verbal, emotional) and other traumas that lead men to be ashamed of their sexuality.
Misconceptions about sexual behavior and bad role models that can damage or even ruin men's intimate relationships.
