Why Therapy? // Women and Porn

 

     Personal therapy has its emphasis on developing new ways of thinking, such as the ability to contain and “think about” thoughts and to represent them in words and images. The introspective and solitary act of considering one’s thoughts leads to more coherence between thinking and feeling and curbs both compulsive and impulsive behavior.  
     Interpreting how one’s mind works is the key to emotional health and that deconstructing the defenses leads to the discovery of affects and belief systems that are the foundation of the personality.
     No one will really praise us for looking inward, will they? It’s a self-directed course, to know thyself and strive to adapt, bend, grow - like the wise oak tree.

     Today, I am including an article on a surprising new trend, women and pornography, as well as a new non-profit group targeting the effects of porn addiction in youth.
