Downloading the Internet: Digital and Real World Hoarding Behavior in Sex Addicts

Facilitated By: Erica Sarr, PsyD, MEd, BCB, CSAT-S

Date: Friday, April 3, 2020 

Time: 8:00am - 12:00pm PDT

 

In an era of digital infinity, how do we know when we have arrived at too much? When thinking about collecting objects in real space, the chaos is easier to see.  However, when thousands of pictures can be dropped on a single flash drive, physical space no longer may serve as a useful metric for concern.  Similarly, when assessing for sexually compulsive behavior, the amount of sex had may not be the defining characteristic.  Rather the amount of mental and emotional space it consumes may be the more relevant element for considering whether a problem has developed, its scope, and how it must be intervened upon.  Additionally, we must be concerned with etiology of the manifesting issue.  Are we looking at compulsivity?  A harmless pastime?  Escalation?  Or something else?  This presentation applies the current scientific literature on hoarding behavior combined with case examples of clients who exhibited hoarding behaviors co-occurring with other compulsive behavior.  Specifically, we will look at the underlying constructs that addiction and hoarding have in common and how hoarding behavior may serve as an auxiliary form of anxiety management as well as an enhancing or moderating component for some kinds of compulsive sexual behavior.  Some examples will explore cases of analog hoarding, but we will also delve into the digital world and see what unique opportunities and pitfalls this type of collecting behavior provides. 


Objectives:
  1.  After this presentation, participants will be able to name 3 types of intervention for addressing varying levels of hoarding behavior.
  2. After this presentation, participants will be able to identify 3 questions to being querying clients about compulsive collecting behaviors.
  3.  After this presentation, participants will be able to identify underlying psychological factors in common between hoarding and other addictive behavior.
  4. After this presentation, participants will be able to identify at least one unique challenge to digital hoarding different from most analog hoarding behavior
