As an active Latter-day Saint, he understands the unique Mormon sexual culture, its associated gender roles, and how to work collaboratively with ecclesiastical leaders. He is also very knowledgeable of the LDS Addiction Recovery Program and its 12-Step Guide. Dr. King’s graduate education included courses in human sexuality, compulsive and addictive behavior treatment, and advanced clinical practice. His doctoral practicum and internship offered him specialized training of Dan Siegal’s Interpersonal Neurobiology (INPB) – so he understands how to re-wire the brain’s mirror neurons that become addicted to pornography, how to reform dysfunctional attachment styles, and how to heal from betrayal trauma. Dr. King has also been trained in Patrick Carnes’ sex addiction treatment and John Gottman’s couple therapy lab. He attends the annual conference of the Utah Coalition Against Pornography and is an active sponsor of Fight the New Drug.
