Integrity Restored Symposium


Integrity Restored

This Diocesan Symposium provides education and training from both theological and psychological perspectives for ordained and lay leaders to respond to pornography and its effects on the Church.

Participants will be given a crash course in theological anthropology, the science of addiction, relationships, and the different levels of intervention to help others to break free and heal from the devastating effects of pornography on marriages and families.

The mission of Integrity Restored is to help restore the integrity of individuals, spouses, and families that have been affected by pornography and pornography addiction. Integrity Restored provides education, training, encouragement, and resources to break free from pornography, heal relationships, and to assist parents in preventing and responding to pornography exposure which is so devastating in the lives of our children. We are also a resource that trains and helps clergy in assisting families at the parish level, so that the domestic church truly becomes what it is, the human space in which we encounter Christ.
