Porn World vs. Real World. Conscious men. Ocd - exposure & response prevention. Exposure and response prevention (ERP) is a treatment method available from behavioral psychologists and cognitive-behavioral therapists for a variety of anxiety disorders, especially obsessive–compulsive disorder and phobias.

ocd - exposure & response prevention

It is an example of an exposure therapy and was first developed by UK psychologist Victor Meyer.[1] Recent results indicate that ERP can be carried out effectively with minimal face-to-face contact between the therapist and the subject.[5] The results of a 2008 study indicate that simultaneous administration of d-cycloserine substantially improves effectiveness of exposure and response prevention.[6] Organizations[edit] Exposure and response prevention is a behavior therapy technique.

Additionally, the International Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Foundation [2] provides training and recognition for training in Exposure and Response Prevention for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

Perhaps a better name for the program would have been “Man Planet,” as the show primarily chronicled the incredible feats of men around the world–men the tentacles of civilization have barely grazed. There were men mining sulfur from an active volcano; men diving dozens of feet and holding their breath for five minutes at a time to spear fish on the ocean floor; men initiating their sons into manhood by teaching them how to train eagles to hunt. Even seemingly pedestrian tasks like taking your kids to school were fraught with danger; a father escorted his children on a 60 mile journey through the Himalayas, watching for potential avalanches and walking over a frozen river that could have cracked open at any moment.

I guess you could say I was a typical sensitive, quiet child—a “Mama’s boy” if you will. I enjoyed music, reading, knitting, and skipping with the girls, while my older brother played pee-wee hockey, little league baseball, and collected sports memorabilia. Evenings at our home usually meant my brother and father watching Hockey Night in Canada, while my mother and I would watch The Love Boat, Dallas, or whatever other cheesy 80′s television program was playing at the time. Many evenings and several hockey games later, my brother and father got to use the big color TV in the living-room, while mom and I got stuck watching the little black and white in the bedroom.


Why men don't listen to women. In a recent posting I identified a list of the wrong things to say to someone who is upset.

Interestingly, this led to a lot of comments on The Huffington Post, which got me thinking. The first thought I had was, "Why do men find it so hard to validate women? " Before I get into this, I'd like you to think about the research by psychologist John Gottman. Gottman has been able to predict with 91 percent accuracy which couples will end up getting divorced. He calls these "The Four Horsemen of Apocalypse" -- along with other problematic styles of communication. Now I don't want to claim that men are always the problem -- or that they are even more likely to be the problem than women are. The Seven Reasons Men Don't Listen. Manipulative relationships.

Sex addiction & cell phones. As Tiger Woods demonstrated by cell-phone texting his mistress while fighting with his wife about infidelity at the same time, it is impossible to help people understand and heal from sex addition today without dealing with the effect smart phones (iphone, droid) and social networks (Facebook, MySpace) are having on those who struggle with compulsive and impulsive patterns of sexual behavior.

And here is the basic issue: as anonymous access and connection to sexual content increases so do the problems, i.e. the faster you can access more material, the easier it is to get into personal or professional trouble. While we estimate that only 3-5% of the online population has a problem with sex addiction, those numbers are rapidly growing related to the increasing accessibility of online sexual content and connections.
