"You have been betrayed in your marriage. Whether from a hidden sex addiction, porn, or infidelity, you are feeling devastated from the pain. Do you now find yourself struggling to cope with the daily tasks that once felt easy? Or has your physical health has gone downhill? Is your spouse is still relapsing and acting out? Or not understanding the emotional pain you are in?You may think, "How do I even begin to cope?"The A.P.. (American Psychological Association) defines trauma as an emotional response to a terrible and traumatic event. Many of us often think that a traumatic event must be relegated to only extreme, isolated, and life-changing experiences: such as war, extreme physical or sexual abuse, etc.Yet, when we have experienced betrayal in a relationship, we know there must be more to it.Partner Betrayal Trauma as defined by Dr. Doug Weiss, is a specific form of trauma that occurs within relationships by your partner or significant other (1). Trust is broken, and the life you knew is utterly destroyed. You feel out of control and powerless.The impact on the betrayed spouse varies because each betrayal situation is different. However, Weiss has defined six major areas that are affected because of betrayal. This list includes emotional, spiritual, social, physical, sexual and financial betrayal."
