About our Voyeurism Treatment
I can help people with voyeuristic disorder change the offense facilitating thinking that created this behavior, and assuming they were apprehended and suffered those consequences, rebuild their life post arrest. Voyeuristic disorder is a very strong, and very persistent disorder, that needs the most skilled clinician to keep clients reoffense free for life. I have extensive experience in this, and the other disorders addressed here, and I help my clients understand, and control their disorder, and confidently remake a full life for themselves. Voyeurism is a paraphilic disorder. Voyeurism is interest in observing unsuspecting people while they undress, are nude, or are in sexual acts. The interest is usually more in the act of viewing, rather than about the particular victim being watched, although the thinking and behavior can be focused on one particular person for an extended episode. A slang term for a person doing this is a “Peeping Tom”.
The point of voyeurism is that the person being watched doesn’t know. The victim is where they have an expectation of privacy, typically a bathroom, or changing area. Voyeurism pornography, rather than satisfy the disorder, actually makes the disoder much worse. Your brain and unconscious get programmed by these videos, to think the voyeur will have the same outcome as the man in the video, when this is not the reality. Internet videos of this behavior “teach” consciously and unconsciously, that you will not be apprehended if you engage in this activity. Depending on the videos watched, Internet videos may teach the voyeur that should they be discovered, the victims will like these videos made of them. Again, more non reality distorting the voyeurs thinking, and having him not understand the real outcomes he will create for himself should he engage in these acts.
The “spy cams” and “covert” electronics have added a new methods to what was once an in person behavior. “Illegal Surveillance” is being done to victims with “covert cameras” that are often not especially covert. The cameras that this writer sees for sale and that I have seen my clients use, to “covertly” surveil victims, are so obviously at one glance obviously surveillance cameras, that the disorder is present in the buying/shopping stage of the offense build up. Only a person with a disorder would think these cameras are “covert”. Anyone that thinks a poor quality home electronic, put in a very awkward spot, where it is not at all useful “will pass”, or a strange looking black box, that looks as if it was created by putting an iphone inside a coat hook, inside a battery case, “will pass”, has a disorder, and can’t see what the rest of us can see.
