"Let's Explain Trauma Brain" 12/21/18 FREE WEBINAR
Created specifically for sexually and emotionally betrayed partners, this presentation explains what happens when our human brains are hijacked by relational trauma.
Visually engaging and easy-to-understand, “Let’s Explain Trauma Brain” introduces the neurological impact of sexual and emotional betrayal, including situations when we chronically encounter (and viscerally re-experience) our most acute trauma triggers. Can we ever escape the grip of these perpetual trauma responses? Can we intervene to reverse “trauma brain,” moving instead toward empowerment, healing and hope?
Originally designed to educate our betrayed partner clients, we’ve been THRILLED by positive feedback from BOTH parties within recovering relationships. This webinar serves to develop or deepen a shared, empathetic and compassionate approach to “trauma brain” (in ourselves or others), underscoring the imperative invitation to hold safe and supportive space for our loved ones who suffer from betrayal trauma.
This webinar will broadcast live at 1PM EST (Eastern Standard Time) on Friday December 21, 2018. James' presentation will be 90 minutes long, with an additional 30 minutes for interactive Q&A. If you can’t view the webinar during James’ presentation, please register anyway! We’ll send you a link to replay the recording at your convenience.

CHANGES IN PARTNER ATTACHMENT STYLE DURING RECOVERY FROM BETRAYAL TRAUMA
Attachment describes the way in which an individual connects with other people, especially in the face of emotional pain, separation or threat…such as infidelity, abuse and gaslighting
In a significant relationship, such as marriage, attachment is the creation of a bond of deep trust and intimacy.
When a partner is betrayed, through sexual and/or emotional infidelity, it is a deeply traumatizing experience that is an extreme, violational severing of that bond.
Can a partner, or a couple, recover from this level of wounding? The answer is yes! Over the last three years at CORE Relationship Recovery, we have tracked Attachment Style changes in 7 betrayed partners who have experienced the trauma resulting from Problematic Sexual & Intimacy Behaviors (PSIB).
The results of the data collected while following these partners through their recovery process with their husbands show us the changes that partners can expect to go through from Discovery through their treatment (finding safety, stabilization and self-actualization) and couples recovery; including response to Discovery (D-Day), triggers, staggered (non-therapeutic) disclosures, formal disclosure, impact letter and emotional restitution as well as responses to relapse.
By attending the webinar, you will learn the four Attachment Styles, and how that Style changes over the course of recovery from betrayal trauma.
This webinar will benefit Partners and Actors* alike and is brand new information** that is valuable to Helping Professionals in their work with betrayed partners, actors and couples.
This webinar will broadcast live at 2PM ET (Eastern Time) on Friday, October 18th, 2019. James' presentation will be approximately 60 minutes long, with an additional 30 minutes for interactive Q&A. If you can’t view the webinar during James’ presentation, please register anyway! We’ll send you a link to replay the recording at your convenience.
*The "Actor" is the partner who acts out, who has PSIB
**Until more recent research, it was thought that Attachment Style was formed in childhood and was fixed through adulthood. While attachment styles formed in childhood remain relatively stable, the research showed that Attachment Style can change dependent on interpersonal change in relationships. This lead us to wonder about the possibility of changes in Attachment Style from Betrayal and how much, why, and in what ways, it was affected.

Exclusive Intensives For Individuals, Couples and Families
SCHEDULING IS AS NEEDED: YOU CAN SCHEDULE AN INTENSIVE IN THE NEXT AVAILABLE TIME PERIOD
An “exclusive” intensive means that YOU—as an individual, couple or family—will be working alone with our team during the days you spend in our center. All of the work you’ll do with our team is about YOU, resulting in the greatest possible degree of focus and flexibility for your treatment. Exclusive intensives are scheduled according to your availability, and can often be arranged with minimal lead time. We recommend exclusive intensives for clients who desire or require the highest level of customized care, those who are in extreme crisis, and those who can invest a significant amount of time and money into treatment.
January 21–25, 2019 (Call for Future Dates)
For most women reeling and healing after sexual betrayal, life becomes a routine of basic survival. Self-protection morphs into a full-time job, with little energy left to remember—much less revel in!—the women we were born to be. During this 5-day intensive (3 to 6 women), we'll reach beyond the basics of betrayal trauma recovery. Rather than a short-term strategy for survival, we'll seek to rekindle your long-term vision for revival: resurrecting your voice, your vision, your heart, your soul, your body and so much more. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (561) 345-3510.
NEXT DATES: April 1-5, 2019 (Call for future dates)
For men struggling with problematic sexual, emotional and relational behaviors, it takes a unique therapeutic environment (one that's educational, experiential and non-judgmental) to fully grasp how very DIFFERENT life and love can become in recovery. Integrating the traumatic origins and traumatic impact of your most destructive patterns, this 4-day intensive (3-6 men) offers MORE than basic tools for "how to stop" unwanted behaviors. Deeper still, we'll send you home with a passionate, powerful and practical vision for emotional and relational health: one designed to remind you that YOU ARE WORTH the effort! For more information, email email@example.com or call (561) 345-3510.
