Downloading the Internet: Digital and Real World Hoarding Behavior Presenting with Sexual Compulsivity
Friday, September 3, 2021, 12-2pm Eastern
For a Professional Audience

How many pictures are on your phone right now? How many emails in your inbox? How many tabs on your browser? The nature of the technological immersion encouraged by modern life means that many of us are beginning to mimic some of the features we might use to describe a hoarder if we were describing boxes of clothes instead of stored selfies. But when does digital collection become hoarding? It doesn’t stand out in the same way that a house piled with newspapers to the ceiling does. It is easier for the obsessive pursuit and collection of images to go unnoticed when thousands can fit on a thumb drive. Even more specifically, when working with those who struggle with compulsive sexual behavior, this phenomenon may go unexamined, hidden as an artifact of a compulsion towards the content of the images and videos versus the collection of those items themselves. They may even struggle with hoarding behavior unrelated to their sexual desires but driven by the same anxieties, cognitive challenges and traumas that they soothe with their sexuality. This talk is intended to walk clinicians through the basics of the hoarding brain, to see how these clinical manifestations may overlap and merge, and how to support clients when hoarding does emerge as part of the treatment picture.

2.0 CE’s available for professional webinar.

  1. Participants will be able to list the three main features of a hoarding disorder diagnosis
  2. Participants will be able to describe 4 ways in which the cognition of hoarders varies from non-hoarders

Coming Soon to Video on Demand
Sexual Intelligence:
Who has sex? Why? What does it mean? What can go wrong? How can we help?

4 Sessions - For a Professional Audience

The individuals and couples we see have complex relationships with sexuality—with their bodies, their decisions, their identities & orientations, and with their experiences.

To best serve our clients, what do we need to know—about sexuality; about bodies, medications, and health issues; about decision-making; and about how to collect information about this particular individual or couple? And what do we need to understand about ourselves?

In four fast-paced, enjoyable webinars, you’ll learn the Sexual Intelligence approach to working with a wide range of issues. Topics include:

  • Sexual “function” and “dysfunction”
  • Kinky sex
  • Infidelity
  • Pornography
  • Sexuality across the lifespan

You’ll learn interventions you can use immediately, with a broad range of cases. More importantly, you’ll learn a new clinical perspective—the Sexual Intelligence Approach—a blend of psychology, sociology, and attention to language that you’re going to love. You’ll even learn why it’s rarely help to tell patients they’re normal.

This course is designed to meet a portion of the education requirements for the SASH credential – General Human Sexuality Core Knowledge Areas.

Dr. Marty Klein, is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and a Certified Sex Therapist for 39 years—that’s over 40,000 sessions with men, women, and couples.
