Women are often the silent victim of pornography use. This week KSL launches a new initiative to educate and unite women impacted by a spouse’s pornography addiction.
According to the National Coalition for the Protection of Children and Families, 47% of families in the United States say pornography is a problem in their home.
If it’s not a problem in your home, chances are it’s impacting somebody you love … a daughter, a sister, a friend.
Dr. Jill Manning, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, and author of the “Elephant in the Room” has isolated five factors she says are important to helping women find hope and healing:
1. Connection: The ability to connect with resources and people who can help her navigate the crisis.
2. Advocacy: Someone that gives her the courage to say “this isn’t right” and “it has to stop”.
3. Validation: Someone or something that validates and normalizes her feelings of anger, blame, loss of self-worth, etc.
4. Education: Good information that helps her understand it’s not her fault.
5. Direction: Resources including reading lists, support groups, and professionals she can turn to for help.
