The Betrayal Bond
Breaking Free of Exploitive Relationships
Back to All Workshops
Emotional Trauma 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 and can become positive or 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. It addresses the exploitation of all kinds: marital, familial, relational, professional, religious, litigious, child abuse, domestic violence, cults, and addictions.
