The patient, a 44-year-old man, approaches the consultation when he is facing the legal consequences of a complaint, filed by his ex-partner, for spreading videos in which they had sex. He also reports that he has a very reduced social life and makes heavy use of pornography with significant social consequences. The patient reports that his difficulties emerged following the breakup of the relationship with his previous girlfriend. After an in-depth diagnostic phase, the treatment was combined with a psychodynamic approach to analyze childhood experiences, the structuring of internal operating models, and cognitive-behavioral approach to work on the acted as well as identifying the factors that maintain the problem.
