Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as a Treatment for Problematic Pornography Viewing




Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is one of the few research supported treatments for problematic pornography viewing. In a recent randomized clinical trial, individuals were able to reduce their viewing of pornography on average by over 90% after participating in 12 sessions of ACT.

ACT is a transdiagnostic treatment that has been found efficacious for a wide range of problems across over 300 randomized controlled trials including compulsive disorders such as pornography viewing. ACT provides a comprehensive framework for addressing core pathological processes underlying problematic pornography viewing including psychological inflexibility (rigid adherence to inner experiences including urges, thoughts, emotions;), low trait-mindfulness, emotion dysregulation and moral disapproval.

This four-session 90-minute webinar series (6 hours total) will demonstrate how ACT principles effectively reduce unwanted pornography viewing by cultivating openness to experiencing urges to view pornography and by promoting value-directed behaviors instead of ineffective efforts to control inner experiences and perceived addiction.
