Men and women recovering from sexual addiction and relational trauma often progress at different paces. Unfortunately, many women feel left behind in their own recoveries while watching their husbands experience insights, behavioral changes, and support in the early phase of recovery. They question what they may be doing wrong. They get blamed for being stubborn or "high maintenance". They may feel they have to put aside their needs so they don't get left behind in the relationship. In this workshop, Geoff Steurer helps women understand what they can do to honestly assess their own recoveries and make peace with their pace. Participants will also learn healthy ways to communicate their needs in recovery so they can stay connected to themselves and their partner.
This presentation was recorded at the Togetherness Project annual conference on August 27, 2016 in Midway, Utah.
