with this territory, how can we help clients navigate it? This workshop will present an overview of the cyber-dating universe, including what your clients need to know to avoid negative experiences and how they can use the Internet to evaluate and find “real” relationship possibilities that can also exist in real life. We’ll discuss the effects of pornography “expectation” on dating, the ADD-like system of online relationships, and long-distance tracking that comes from cybersex. We’ll explore technology’s impact on intimacy, infidelity, and isolation, and discuss what lies ahead for relationships in our technological future.
