Group Therapy

Unwanted Pornography Use Group

Arizona Center for Marriage and Family Therapy is organizing a counseling group for
those who struggle with unwanted pornography use. Here’s some more information
about the group and how you can register:

There are several reasons why so many people struggle with unwanted and addictive
pornography use. Here, you can learn in a supportive environment about the physical,
mental, and emotional factors that lead to urges and relapses.

Our group facilitator, Zach, is trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which are two research-based methods that
are shown to help reduce unwanted pornography use. A recent study has shown that
the participants who engaged in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy sessions
reduced their unwanted pornography viewing on average by over 90%.

What are ACT and CBT?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) interventions help us to increase our
awareness about our thoughts and emotions and commit to behavior that aligns with
our values. Through practicing mindfulness and other skills that you will gain in the
group, you can improve your ability to notice triggers earlier, slow down your thinking,
remember what is truly important to you, and be able to avoid going to pornography and
choose values-driven behavior instead.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) also helps us be aware of and have more control
over our cognitions. Along with that, you will be given behavioral tools including
tracking, reinforcement scheduling, and journaling that will help you have success with
your pornography goals.
