Neil Strauss – Emotional incest & sexual addiction

via Neil Strauss – Cheaters, Sex Addicts

Subtle abuse

Family dynamics

Attachment theory

I know and accept that I am psychologically unhealthy/damaged. And my current emotional problems and sexual behavior are linked to my early childhood in some way. But I also believe that there is much more to this (who I am today) than just psychology (personal philosophy, cultural context, etc.)!

How was I parented? –> how I relate to significant others in my life (especially the opposite sex – spouse, etc.) –> how I parent another (ministry, children, etc.)

Is my intellectual predisposition actually a symptom of my emotional retardation/relational avoidance?

Avoidance in addicts and addiction in avoidants

Become the kind of person you want to date

Childhood resilience!

Criminal negligence of self!

(I only listened to the talk, not the discussion)
