In this interesting and interactive course we define addiction while exposing many misconceptions around porn and other compulsive behaviours related to sex.  Brain science and theories of evolutionary biology reveal how addiction starts with a natural human attraction to reproduce which has gone awry due to early emotional and developmental neglect and trauma. Because this training is written and delivered by a professional with individual experience in this form of addiction, attendees will hear descriptions of what it feels like to be trapped in this cycle of shame and obsession where sex becomes increasingly used to try to manage emotions.

Recovery is possible:

KC shares snippets from his own story of addiction, how his recovery has progressed, and the lessons he learns that helps him and others in daily recovery. Epigenetics, the science of the changes that happen in the neuro-network of our brains, shows the science that this deep and chronic physiology in addiction can be improved, building new habits, rewiring the addicted brain, and finding recovery from addiction.  We list where can people find others on this journey, learn from them, to draw strength from each other and find hope.

The course is based on the latest understanding of addiction and neuroscience, backed and complemented by real life experiences of addiction and recovery.  Time is given for questions and and contributions from attendees to learn from each others’ experiences–professional, volunteer, and others.

About KC

KC works on his own recovery, mentoring others to recover, drawing on his own experience of recovery after 25 years in active addiction. Plus he learns by researching as well as talking to others in addiction and colleagues who work in the mental health and addiction recovery field. KC enjoys teaching, raising awareness, challenging stigma and giving a voice to others who have experienced these challenges.

Nothing is better than face to face interaction for communicating.  It gives the richest learning experience and makes it easier for us all to learn from each other.  But with traveling and covid challenges, our courses are offered in both formats: online and in person.
