From Crisis to Connection: Forest Benedict - Self-care for me in recovery from addiction - Episode 29

from crisis to connection podcast Jan 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.
