Description

Description:

In 2019, the World Health Organization elected to include a new diagnosis of Compulsive Sexual Behavior Disorder in the 11th edition of the International Classification of Diseases, despite intense controversy around its inclusion. A body of work now suggests that the new diagnosis of Compulsive Sexual Behavior Disorder may be complicated by personal moral and religious beliefs. This seminar will focus on clinical concerns around pornography use, the relationships of conservative values and religiousness with pornography use, the notion of moral incongruence, and all the implication of above on novel diagnosis of Compulsive Sexual Behavior Disorder.

Learning Objectives:

1). Participants will be able to effectively describe the relationships between conservative religiousness and moral disapproval of pornography use

2). Participants will be able to define moral incongruence and explain how it relates to compulsive sexual behavior

3). Participants will be able to distinguish between compulsive sexual behavior and distress related to moral incongruence
