This CPD workshop has been specifically designed with a spiritual focus to help counsellors and pastoral carers working with Christians who struggle with sex or porn addiction.  The day will explain addiction from a biopsychosocial perspective and explore biblical perspectives on dependency. Ultimately only the ‘addict’ can decide if their behaviour is ‘addictive’ or out of control but this intense and information packed day will help those in a supportive role to guide people towards that decision. Practical tools will also be provided along with guidance for appropriate referral.
