Do you feel you've gone crazy and can't get off the roller coaster of emotions since discovering your partner's secretive behaviours and betrayal?
No doubt you are devastated and grieving multilayered losses. Partners of sex addicts frequently experience the anguish of betrayal, which is multifaceted and nuanced. A betrayed partner may experience betrayal-trauma responses such as emotional instability, grief, despair, low self-esteem, body-image issues, anxiety, and depression, to name but a few consequences.
This workbook offers a detailed description of the steps involved in grief processing and healing from betrayal trauma. Dr Fai provides a practical picture of suggested techniques that are based on current research and brain science while urging a holistic approach to betrayal-trauma recovery. She also developed a 12-Steps for betrayed partners in this book, which adds a new layer to healing and is influenced by the original 12-Steps.
Currently, Dr Fai is the only academic in Australia who holds a PhD in sexual addiction, its impact on female partners' well-being and lived experiences, and betrayal trauma.
