Breaking Through Betrayal: And Recovering the Peace Within is for any individual who has experienced betrayal and is struggling to break through its bonds. Through a proven process tailored for recovery from betrayal injury, readers are invited to:
Explore and connect with the different kinds of betrayal: rejection or abandonment; a violation of trust; a shattered truth or belief.
Identify and move through betrayal’s three States of Being – confusion, worthlessness, and powerlessness - while uncovering contributors of symptom intensity and duration.
Revive and restore mind, body, and spirit with a 5-part recovering process for “righting oneself” and attend to re-occurrence or re-injury.
New in this Second Edition of Breaking Through Betrayal, readers are offered a unique perspective on a timeless topic -- relapse. By reframing relapse as a familiar experience and redefining it as an issue of self-betrayal, readers are:
Drawn into a safe conversation while breaking through the stigma, secrecy, and shame of returning to any kind of unhealthy pattern of thinking, behaving, or feeling.
Invited to partake in an empowering 6-part recovering process in moving from self-betrayal to self-discovery.
