ADDO’S CLASS DESCRIPTION:
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 11am Mountain Daylight-savings Time (click on the ‘Register Here’ link above to view the time in your time zone). 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.
