This is a group where you can learn about sexual addiction and find support from others who have had similar experiences, just like your own.  If your spouse or partner has disclosed to you that they are experiencing problems with sexual addictive behaviors or you suspect they may have these concerning behaviors, then this is the group for you.

Hearing others share their experience with discoveries, emotions, fears, trauma and doubts is very important to your healing.  This group will validate you and allow you to realize that you are not alone.  You may find comfort in sharing your story with others as well as listening to the experiences of others who are likewise dealing with loving and living with a person with sexual addiction.

The group uses the workbook,  Facing Heartbreak: Steps to Recovery for Partners of Sex Addicts by Stefanie Carnes and Mari A. Lee.  The group is structured by the counselor so that all participants will have the opportunity to share and explore their concerns while learning about sexual addiction.  Group members begin with a check-in for their own accountability.  This is important because as you look around at the faces of the members of the group, you begin to connect with others who are hurting and you no longer feel so alone.  We then process and share one another’s work that has been completed between group sessions.
 
The group will work on issues with a variety of topics brought by group members and suggested by the counselor pertaining to issues group members are experiencing in their immediate lives.  We close the meeting with a reading that provides promises and hope for the future.
 
One of the most fascinating aspects of being in a group is the learning from other group members.  You not only benefit from recognizing your emotional responses but also in identifying with the feelings others.  Through identification with others, you increase your self-awareness.
