Partners and Spouses of Sex Addicts Trauma
Partners and spouses of sex addicts suffer specific and significant trauma due to the deceit and crazy making inherent in the double life of a sex addict. Emotional, physical, mental, and sexual trauma may all be present in the partner of a sex addict. We at Amendz Relationship Institute treat the trauma that results from these sources of abuse. We provide support and guidance to help survivors deal with the emotional pain, loss, and anger. We assist in validating feelings and experiences as credible and help the partner reclaim their reality and judgment. We provide guidance in setting up a self care plan and a set of non-negotiables in dealing with the addict.
