    The Prevalence of Domestic Violence in the Lives of Partners of Sex Addicts | With Lisa Taylor

    The Prevalence of Domestic Violence in the Lives of Partners of Sex Addicts | With Lisa Taylor

    In this interview I share the results of my Masters thesis which show that rates of domestic violence are considerably higher in the lives of partners of sex addicts than in the general population. This is significant because women are arriving daily on therapists’ doorsteps seeking help for betrayal trauma, but with their experiences of DV under recognized and under disclosed. Moreover the study looked into what factors were associated with more frequent violence and damaging types of violence (i.e., physical and sexual) and what factors were associated with violence mitigation.

    Considering the Impact for Neurodiverse Couples with Autism and Asperger Traits | with Shawna Meek

    Often when doing couples recovery work, the approach is from a neurotypical lens following betrayal trauma and sex addition. This may work for many couples, but what about when these approaches aren’t working for the long term healing of the relationship? Many couples share that it can be frustrating and discouraging especially when both partners in the couple ship desires growth and change. We are going to be talking about another lens and perspective to consider when one or both partners are autistic, have Asperger traits, or wonder if they may be on the spectrum. We will be:

    • Recognizing this may be a consideration to explore

Helping me understand

I do have to rifle through the episodes to find the ones that help where I am at in my journey but I am grateful for the podcasts that helped unlock the answers to so many questions I have. I feel like I have been given permission to feel because of this podcast and it’s content! Thank you for helping those of us that can’t access groups and therapy!

Great Content

Great listen, but I wonder why all of the focus is with the female as the partner. I believe APSATS is missing a very strong population of us men that are the partner. Thanks again for a great podcast!
