The indelible impact of the pandemic can be seen quite visibly in many facets of the mental health world, such as increased anxiety levels, depressive disorders, and even deaths of despair. The deconstruction of the Christian faith in the West became more prominent, and remote work and schooling from home created unforeseen upheaval in the functioning of the family system. In large measure, these variables have quietly contributed to an enormous growth in problematic sexual behavior among believers and non-believers alike. This presentation will examine the dark side of the Web that has grown through the pandemic, explore cross-addiction and escalation in the context of problematic sexual behavior, and introduce participants to a model for overcoming shame with willing Christian clients.

Learning Objectives

1. Analyze contemporary variables that heighten problematic sexual behavior/sexual addiction in the context of the pandemic
2. Evaluate the recent shifts in cybersexual behavior in terms of escalation and addiction interaction
3. Assess the role of vulnerability in overcoming shame and re-establishing personal integration for willing Christian clients
