Betrayal Trauma Intensive
For partners looking to build support, emotionally destabilize, and gain tools to manage the impact of betrayal
The goal of our Partner’s Intensive is to provide a safe space for healing for women in relationship with a sex addict. This intensive provides a small group environment to help provide community support, a safe space where you can share your story with others, education, resources, and tools for beginning your healing journey from betrayal trauma.
We take a multidimensional partner trauma model approach, recognizing that sex addiction creates a traumatic rupture for partners of sexually addicted men and women. Because of this betrayal trauma, we’ve found that many partners need extra support to help build support and healing.
Some topics included in the partner’s intensive are:
Dealing with the emotional aftershock of discovery and/or disclosure Understanding betrayal
Examining the impact of sexual betrayal
Building new resources for self-care and safety Navigating trauma triggers
Understanding sex addiction
Exploring the impact of sex addiction on the body and on sexuality Identifying patterns of emotional and psychological abuse in the relationship Healing somatically
