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.
