The Betrayal Bond workshop is designed to help participants free themselves from, and recover from, exploitive relationships, processes, and situations.

Breaking Free of Abusive and Exploitive Relationships

“In 1992, I attended a week-long seminar with Dr. Patrick Carnes on trauma bonds. As a counselor for chemical dependency, I used Dr. Carnes handouts with those in treatment and serving time in the Indiana Department of Corrections until my retirement in 2008; but, his work also personally changed my life with my own childhood trauma. Today I still use his principles in my church with those who still suffer from the effects of unresolved trauma.”
– Michael C.

Rio Retreat Center at The Meadows unique workshops offer healing and empowerment to individuals in various stages of their recovery. Our workshops address the needs of those who have just begun a recovery process as well as those who have been on a recovery path and may have hit a plateau or want to deepen their experience. Workshops can also be a source of renewal for anyone who has undergone treatment. Participants work on sensitive issues in a concentrated format allowing them to jump-start and enhance their personal recovery journey by gaining insight into unhealthy patterns and practicing new relational skills within a safe environment.

About the Workshop

The Betrayal Bond workshop is designed to help participants free themselves from, and recover from, exploitive relationships, processes, and situations. We tend to think of all bonds as being positive but, they are actually neutral. They can become positive, but they can also become negative. A betrayal bond is a type of negative bond that occurs when someone develops a strong and intense attachment to a person or an addictive process that is destructive to them.

This workshop was developed under the guidance of Dr. Patrick Carnes, internationally known sex addiction expert and a Senior Fellow at The Meadows, and is based on his groundbreaking book of the same name. The workshop addresses exploitation of all kinds: marital, familial, relational, professional, religious, litigious, child abuse, domestic violence, cults, and addictions.

The goals of this workshop are to help participants:

  • Recognize, acknowledge and develop insights about situations, people and processes that are exploitive in nature.
  • Break through denial, identify signs that a betrayal bond exists, and grieve losses.
  • Explore the root causes of one’s involvement in relationships, situations and processes that are destructive to them.
  • Identify key elements that drive the cycle of abuse, betrayal of trust and power.
  • Learn about the psychodynamic and neurobiological concepts behind exploitive situations and relationships.
