Ahh, crap! You told somebody.


We've all been there.  That terrifying place of asking for help.  

You've decided to trust someone.  You tell the truth.  You cry and yell and sob and your mascara runs and you feel more vulnerable and exposed than ever.  But, you feel an unstable relief as the words spill from your tongue and fall on listening ears.  Finally, the hope of help.  Our puffy red eyes regain focus we wait for the help we need.

Sometimes we get the support and love and compassion we need.  But sometimes we don't.  And, sometimes those interactions can cause even more trauma, right?  It's an intense situation for anyone to navigate.  

This is why I'm so happy about Addo Recovery's commitment providing tools for healing.  This Friday, May 16th Addo Recovery will hold a webinar educating about the trauma of spouses and loved ones.  

Is this not what we have been asking for??

When someone has a sexual or pornography addiction the whole family hurts. The betrayal can lead to intense heartbreak and trauma experienced by spouses and loved ones. This trauma can be emotionally and physically devastating. The webinar will focus on understanding what spouses and loved ones are experiencing and how to best advise and support them. Specifically we will be discussing: 

1. What is betrayal trauma?
2. What are the signs of betrayal trauma?
3. Do they need more than you can give?
4. What should the expectations be for healing?
5. When and where can you send them for proper help? 

During this webinar we will take an in-depth look at the impact sexual or pornography addiction has on the family, specifically spouses. The webinar will be conducted by Addo Recovery's Clinical Director and best selling author of Treating Pornography Addiction: The Essential Tools For Recovery, Dr. Kevin Skinner.

The webinar will be held on Friday, May 16th at 1pm MST. There will be time for Q&A. If anyone has any specific questions that they would like Dr. Skinner to address they can submit them to AdvisorSupport@AddoRecovery.com.

The training will be recorded, so if someone is unable to participate live it will be available for playback. If they would like to receive a link to the recorded presentation they will need to register.
