From the Publisher"The six-step recovery process delineated here draws on the authors' personal experiences with domestic betrayal. Betrayal here is defined as the act of being disloyal to a person who believes you are being loyal, often by doing something hurtful (e.g., engaging in extramarital affairs, being dishonest, leading a double life). The six steps-awareness, acceptance, action, authorization, accountability, and advancement-are clearly explained; interspersed throughout are the real-life stories of eight individuals who have successfully worked through the recovery process. Besides their pragmatic, down-to-earth advice-shot through with their religious beliefs but which readers of any faith could embrace-the authors offer several worksheet tools and a suggested reading list of resources. This title nicely updates Janis A. Spring's After the Affair: Healing the Pain and Rebuilding Trust When a Partner Has Been Unfaithful, supplements Patrick J. Carnes's The Betrayal Bond: Breaking Free of Exploitive Relationships, and covers more types of betrayal than Rory C. Reid and Dan Gray's Discussing Pornography Problems with a Spouse: Confronting and Disclosing Secret Behaviors. Recommended for public libraries."
