PARTNER’S INTENSIVE

Sign Up

 

What is the main purpose of the Partner’s Intensive?

The goal of our Partner’s Intensive is to provide a safe space for healing for those who are 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 betrayaltrauma.

 

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.

 

Who is a good fit for the Partner’s Intensive?

Our Partner’s Intensive is designed for any partners who are healing from the impact of sexual betrayal. Whether you are in early healing after discovery and/or disclosure, or if you have been in the recovery process for a while but want to take your healing to a new level the intensive provides a unique space for you to find refuge and restoration.

 

How long does it last?

The intensive lasts for 4-days, with the days running roughly from 9:00AM – 6:00PM, or 30 therapy hours. Send us an email to receive a sample schedule.

  • Dealing with the emotional aftershock of discovery and/or disclosure

  • Examining the impact of sexual betrayal

Why do this intensive instead of regular outpatient therapy? 

We recognize that everyone’s journey of healing from betrayal trauma is different. We also know that healing comes best in community. Because of this, we are offering this intensive to build a community of support and healing, where it can otherwise be so difficult to find other safe people to fully share thisjourneywith.  Our intensive provides a unique blend of processing, information sharing, and expressive healing opportunities in a small group environment that is often impossible to  accomplish on an individual outpatient level. We also take into consideration  your unique situation and will do our best to build a program that meets you right whereyou are.

 

What about my responsibilities with my job and family?
