Healing Through Joy

This is a level-2 group that helps you build on the foundation of healing you laid in Journey to Healing and Joy

These groups provide a deeply healing way to resolve unhealed trauma, whether that trauma is from childhood or from our partner's sexual addiction, or from both. Using the Life Model principles introduced in Journey to Healing & Joy, this group combines neuroscience, Attachment Theory, and Biblical principles to take us further in our healing. Together we give our brains what they need to help us heal. And as we do, something truly amazing happens: our hope, our peace, and our joy increases! Experiencing God, loving one another, and bearing each others' burdens will become richer and more natural as you learn more about receiving and giving life. Join us and find healing from unresolved trauma in your life. This process cannot, and does not, happen in isolation. It takes community. As we encourage and love one another, we provide the opportunity to turn that important corner towards healing, hope, and joy!

This group meets every week for 1½ hours for 12 weeks. Price is $40 a week for 12 weeks = $480.00. NOTE: ALL TIMES ARE DISPLAYED IN NEW YORK TIME ZONE.

Effective Boundaries

How to Create & Use Effective Boundaries with Coach Carin

In her book, "Moving Beyond Betrayal. The 5-Step Boundary Solution for Partners of Sex Addicts" Vicki Tidwell Palmer says: "Your greatest source of strength and safety comes from your practice of good self-care through the use of effective boundaries—knowing how they work, how to create them, and what to do when they’re broken."

The devastation sexual betrayal brings to your life can leave you feeling like a helpless victim with no control over your situation. Being part of this group discussion, you, the partner will be supported and have an opportunity to share, receive and respond in a safe place. Honest and vulnerable interactions between members and the facilitator dissolve the isolation, otherness and shame we are struggling with.

-You will evaluate the health of your relationship with the addict, and change unhealthy marital dynamics.

-You will learn how to create good and healthy boundaries.

-You will gain insight in your reality and how to own it.

-You will learn to identify your needs and wants, and how to communicate them in a healthy way.

-You will discover you have personal power, and learn to use it to eradicate victimhood and stop the chaotic dance.

-You will end ultimatums and unsuccessful attempts at control by learning to make requests that lead to clarity and bring resolutions.

-You will learn how to deal with broken boundaries.

Join us for a group discussion every week, and learn skills that can transform all your relationships, including your marriage if you are still with your partner, and lead to healthier communication and a happier lifestyle.

This group begins in January 2017 and meets every week for 1½ hours for 10 weeks. $40 a week for 10 weeks = $400.

It requires the purchase of Vicki Palmer's Moving Beyond Betrayal available at Amazon.

Starting Over: When the Marriage Ends

This is a level-2 group that helps you build on the foundation of healing you laid in Journey to Healing and Joy. (The "Journey to Healing and Joy" group is a prerequisite.)

From my own experience, I have learned so much about what it takes to face separation and divorce. It is painful, with feelings of betrayal and rejection, deep grief, and fear. It is a time of turmoil and uncertainty. But I also learned that God uses this most difficult times of our lives to teach us the most important lessons. God did a lot of work on me, loving me through the process while my faith in Him grew. Hope and healing are possible, but it takes time. Lots of time. This facilitated group will give you the direction, information, time, and discernment necessary to travel the path to separation and divorce along with a community of trusted companions to travel with you.

The workbook, which you will need to purchase for the group — A Fresh Start by Bob Burns — is filled with hard-hitting, interactive material, but allows you to personalize the concepts for your own, unique journey. This 12-week facilitated healing together support group will focus on:

Part #1: Coming Unglued
Week 1 - Introduction. Week 2 - Facing the 5 stages of divorce recovery. Can your marriage be saved? Week 3 - The separation/reconciliation struggle. Week 4 - Looking at the biblical view of divorce and remarriage. Week 5 - Dealing with legal issues. Avoiding common mistakes.

Part #2: Picking Up the Pieces
Week 6 - Reentry into the single life: how to do this safely and wisely. Week 7 - Dealing with finances: demystifying, setting up, and controlling your new budget. Week 8 - Communication and conflict. Different levels of communication. How to resolve conflict in positive ways that require communication skills. Week 9 - Everything you wanted to know about sexuality as a single person. Week 10 - Working through bitterness and learning to forgive.

Part #3: Other Issues
Week 11 - Helping your children through the divorce. Week 12 - The importance of continuing support.

As a part of this healing group, you won't have to go through this alone. We need each other and, together, we will be a community of trusted travelers who support each other as we walk this difficult path. Please join me on this healing journey.
