For those who are looking to overcome negative behaviors, or even simply identify the source of some of their emotional suffering, intensive workshops can be a springboard to recovery and renewal.

Those who work as helpers and healers (e.g. therapists, social workers, doctors, nurses, police officers, first responders, teachers, and caregivers) often describe feeling a spiritual calling to do the demanding and meaningful work that they do.

Partners of sex addicts often find themselves feeling alone and isolated. First, the feelings of loneliness come when the addicted partner is acting out. Although the partner of the sex addict is not always able to identify what is wrong, they often sense the addict’s distance and are aware of a shift in the addict or in the relationship.

By Dan Griffin, MA, Senior Fellow at The Meadows

When I went to school to learn how to work with people with addictive disorders I got a lot of great guidance: Brain science. Family systems. Motivational Interviewing. Models of Change. Working with the criminal justice population. Working with women. Cultural influences on addiction and recovery.

There is an undeniable link between childhood trauma and the ability to cope with adult trauma. Traumatic experiences seem to build upon one another, and not in a good way.

By Brenna Gonzales, MS, LPC, Rio Retreat Center at The Meadows Therapist

In our culture, we are taught that certain feelings are off limits. There is a general sense that if you’re not happy most of the time that you’re doing life wrong.
