At The Austin Stone Counseling Center one of our core values is encouraging each of our clients to be actively involved in biblical community. Because of this, we also believe that group counseling creates a unique space to struggle and be counseled with other individuals. This group will allow you to relate with and encourage others who are also facing pornography addiction and temptation and will give you a place to have discussion that is grounded in the gospel and a relationship with Jesus Christ. Our prayer is that this group will provide hope and healing in the midst of struggle and discouragement.
Description: The group will be a 5-week journey lead by two graduate counselors that will provide an opportunity to unpack and explore the struggle behind pornography addiction and temptation. The group will be gospel centered, theologically rooted, and scientifically informed and members will be encouraged to participate through the sharing of their testimony along with current struggles with pornography. Sexual purity is every man’s battle and should not be fought alone. The group will consist of 6 to 10 men.
Population: Ages 20 – 35 : The group will be most beneficial for those who either consider pornography an addiction or a constant temptation.
