Gene's BIO: (As taken from his website Authentic Relatiosnhips International)

Gene McConnell (Anchorage Alaska), is one of North America’s foremost experts on shame & its impact on one’s personal perception that effects all other relationships.

Gene has developed training for therapists, pastors, law enforcement officers, and medical professionals for over 31years focusing on education about pornography’s role in the exploitation of men, women and children in our society. In high demand as a speaker – to date has presented, “The Power of PornographyTM” to over 60,000 college students nationwide revealing the sexualization of our culture and it’s impact on our youngest generations

His message helps identify and interpret the adverse consequences of societal trends that are engulfing our increasingly sexualized culture. Gene's work has taken him around the world developing retreats, keynote speaking and has been hosted on radio and TV programs nationally and internationally. His education outreach extends to youth, individuals and organizations world-wide teaching about the foundational elements of building and maintaining healthy relationships in marriage, the workplace and the community. His proprietary programs, Pursuing the Hidden HeartTM, and The Power of PornTM, broke new ground by demonstrating the link between the root causes of shame, broken relationships, and the consumption of sexual images.
