38. Betrayal Trauma with Dr Barbara Steffens

Interview with Dr Barbara Steffens - Author, Therapist, Professor and Founder of APSATS

Season 2, episode 38
50 min / Published

Why is having a partner addicted to porn so traumatic? How does trauma affect the body? Why is getting to the truth so important? Is your behavior controlling or are you just seeking safety? What can you do if your partner won't tell you the whole truth, or if they refuse to get into recovery? What can you do if you get triggered when you are with your partner? And why is it so important to deal with present betrayal trauma first before diving into past trauma work.
