From Crisis to Connection: Forest Benedict - Self-care for me in recovery from addiction - Episode 29Jan 19, 2019
I interview Forest Benedict, LMFT, SATP about how men in recovery from pornography and sexual addiction can care for themselves in long-term recovery. He teaches that men with addictions are "masters of self-neglect" and don't have habits of taking good care of themselves. He is also in recovery himself and shares both his clinical and personal wisdom about how to build a strong self-care program.
Forest Benedict, LMFT, SATP, is the author of the highly-acclaimed book Life After Lust: Stories & Strategies for Sex & Pornography Addiction Recovery (https://www.amazon.com/Life-After-Lust-Strategies-Pornography/dp/0998468215/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1487134790&sr=8-1). Forest uses online group therapy to guide sexually addicted individuals through recovery, serving all of California (https://forestbenedict.com/online-program-details/). He leads sexual addiction workshops and co-facilitates intensives with LifeSTAR Sacramento (http://lifestarsacramento.org/team-view/forest-benedict/).
