*Free* Saturday Discussion And Support Group For Partners of The Chronically Unfaithful
In conjunction with my new article, "Partners of The Chronically Unfaithful", I am pleased to offer the Atlanta community a new, no-cost resource for men or women who have discovered that their partner has commited in multiple acts of sexual betrayal
I have created this discussion and support group to counteract the isolation, shame, confusion and stigma of this problem. It is a way to receive confidential and comforting support, guidance and understanding from others dealing with the same emotionally difficult situation.
Unlike a 12-step or other support group, this gathering has the benefit of professional guidance, and encourages questions and feedback. Unlike a traditional therapy group, there is no commitment to attend: come as many or a few times as you like.
Typical group discussions include:
- whether or not to stay in the relationship
- how and what to tell family and friends
- how to deal with difficult emotions that seem to spring up out of nowhere
- how to determine if sex addiction is real and is the source of the problem
- typical stages of healing and how to avoid getting stuck in this journey
- how to handle issues related to broken trust
- the role of information in the healing process
- how to regain a sense of control, safety and dignity
- reading material that can be helpful on your road to recovery
- how and where to receive more help
- and many other helpful topics
This is a unique opportunity to learn more about how to deal with the issues that arise upon learning that a partner you thought you could trust has engaged in multiple acts of sexual deception. Ask questions, learn more, and find support with the help of others who are committed to healing themselves, under the guidance of a nationally-recognized expert in the field.
This group is open to anyone whose life has been affected by his or her involvement with a sexual addict or repeated sexual betrayer. You do not have to be currently involved with this person nor do they (or you) have to be in any sort of therapy, treatment or recovery in order for you to attend. It is also not necessary for your chronically unfaithful partner to recognize that he or she has a problem -- this is a resource for YOU.
My goal is forming this no-cost group is to help provide a source for empathy, understanding, and direction during this difficult time. All conversations are confidential and there is no obligation of any sort.
The meetings is held Saturday afternoons from 1:00 to 2:30 PM in a comfortable, private office setting just off I-285 at the LaVista Road exit.
Note: It is important that you contact me prior to attending in order to insure that the group is meeting the weekend you want to come.
Note: my article "Partners of the Chronically Unfaithfu" (as well as my article 'A Sex Addict By Any Other Name Hurts The Same") has received a recommendation and link by nationally recognized therapist and author Barbara Steffens, co-author of the highly regarded book, Your Sexually Addicted Spouse".
Also, I have compiled a list of resources that can be valuable to partners of sexually addicted individuals.
