Sexual addictions and compulsive sexual behavior are growing societal problems, with as many as three to six percent of the world population affected. Your Sexually Addicted Partner shatters the stigma and shame that millions of men and women carry when their partners are sexually addicted. They receive little empathy for their pain, which means they suffer alone, often shocked and isolated by the trauma. Barbara Steffens' groundbreaking new research shows that partners are not codependents, but post-traumatic stress victims, while Marsha Means' personal experience provides insights, strategies, and critical steps to recognize, deal with, and heal partners of sexually addicted relationships. Firsthand accounts and stories reveal the impact of this addiction on survivors' lives. Chapters end with "On a Personal Note" questions and propose new paths that lead from trauma to empowerment, health, and hope.
makes you feel like someone gets it and can explain the craziness in your life.
This book was unbalanced. It feels like it was written by a couple of hurt, bitter women who have an axe to grind against me who have hurt them. There is good content, but they take it to far and encourage the extreme victim mentality, which doesn't help anyone really address their problems.
Helped a lot to understand a trauma based recovery of a sex addict partner. Thanks
I appreciated the validation of trauma there partner goes through explained in this book and the steps you can take to begin to heal from that trauma
