Couples Recovery and Addiction with Carol the Coach
Today, Carol the Coach is interviewing Laney Knowlton who has worked in the field of sex addiction for over a decade years. She has developed a model for couples called Coupled Recovery. It uses similarities between the trauma cycle and the addiction cycle to create a common language for addicts and partners, creating a foundation for connection throughout recovery, which starts with emotional safety. This approach is meant to be used in conjunction with individual recovery work. Current models in the field tend to focus on either the addict or the partner. The differences between approaches can make it difficult for partners to see if addicts are working towards recovery, understand the work they are doing, and feel safe in recovery. At the same time, the work that partners do to heal themselves and the relationship is not seen and understood by the addict, and sometimes even left out of the recovery process, making it much more difficult for partners to heal.

Partners Need to Celebrate their Wisdom and Strength with Carol the Coach
Carol the Coach will be interviewing Michele Saffier who will be speaking about her work with partners struggling with betrayal trauma. Discovery forces partners into an existential crisis of self. The choice they are faced with has very little to do with external decisions about their life– divorce, reconciliation, therapy, polygraphs and disclosure, why the betrayer did what they did, etc. There are two paths ahead. The must choose one. The path on the left is the relationship healing journey – individual therapy, partners group, S-Anon, marital therapy, accountability, etc. This path manages the acute crisis yet wellness still depends largley on the “we” and not the “I”. The path on the right far more difficult; it is a Heroes’ Journey. They will battle two-headed dragons, angry monsters and, the scariest monster of all, their own dark side (shadow self). If they hang on for dear life and stay on their journey, they will emerge, like the Phoenix rises from the ashes, transformed. Death and then rebirth. Partners must slay their own dragons to transform themselves. In the spirit of Kintsugi, brokenness is not to be hidden with gorilla glue but rather it is to be celebrated and mended with gold. She believes that partner should be celebrating the wisdom, beauty and strength in their brokenness.

Coincido con otros comentarios. Porqué en cada episodio nos tiene q recordar que ELLA es la primera en hablar del tema en internet? Ojalá hablara menos de ella misma y empezara luego luego con la entrevista.
For straight men and their partners
There’s very little in these podcasts that recognizes that women and LGBTQ people can be sexually addicted. A couple of podcasts focus on the female sex addict with a “SHOCKED” tone, as if it’s stunning news that women could have problems with sexual compulsion. Once in a while the host will add “or she/her” as an afterthought to a comments. I listened to this for several years before realizing that it only reinforced the stigma of being a female sex addict. However, if you’re a straight man or the partner of one, you’ll find a lot of compassionate and informative material here.
