Trauma of any kind can shatter one's sense of security in the world. Betrayal trauma, in a particularly significant way, has the effect of taking away one's sense of control in life, as the past that was believed and assumed for so long is discovered to have been an incomplete reality.
The first steps in psychological first aid after trauma include storing a sense of agency to the one who has suffered the trauma. A return to choice, a sense of empowerment to direct one's own course, is an essential component to be regained before deeper healing can begin.
In this webinar, Dr. Jake Porter will talk about how betrayed partners can find the empowerment necessary for the restoration of their sense of agency and begin determining the steps of their own healing journeys.
