We've all heard reports of people being charged with inappropriate sexting, possessing child porn, or posting “revenge porn” online. While we may like to think that these kinds of illegal activities are rare and unlikely to show up in our therapy rooms, the reality is that far more of our clients are engaged in these practices than we’re aware of. Failure to assess for and address these problematic behaviors can allow a fledgling, one-time event to progress into actions resulting in serious legal consequences for our clients.
While few therapists are aware of it, we are in fact mandated to report illegal cybersex activities of our clients! This presentation will explore the world of cybersex activities and addiction, it’s prevalence, and progression. We'll discuss its illegal aspects and our mandate to report. Assessment tools and resources will be provided.
The goal of this presentation is to familiarize participants with the various forms of problematic cybersex activities, their prevalence and progression, their illegal aspects, and our mandate to report such activities. After completion, the attendee will be better equipped to uncover, access, and address problematic cybersex activities.
At the end of this presentation, attendees will be able to:
List 3 methods of uncovering PCAs
Define reportable activities under AB 1775 (mandate to report)
List 3 resources for addressing PCAs
