Special praise for Moving Beyond Betrayal
The sexual betrayal partners of sex addicts experience is extremely difficult to overcome. It's easy to get stuck in the victim position, resentment, and reactivity.
This splendid work by Vicki Tidwell Palmer provides a step-by-step process that will help partners of sex addicts move out of the trauma and into a more profound sense of intimacy with their partners.
A wonderful read!
Betrayal can put you in a tailspin and distort effective decision-making; while this is a normal process, having a personal as well as professional guide for recovery can ease the pain and hasten recovery.
Moving Beyond Betrayal can serve as a caring companion through this difficult time, and facilitate a more satisfying outcome than you may imagine.

will insure the discovery of a vital, healthy sense of self.

About Moving Beyond Betrayal
Partners of sex addicts experience dire consequences as a result of being in a relationship with someone suffering from compulsive sexual behavior.
Their emotional well-being requires developing new skill sets for self-care and self-protection as they confront the difficult and painful process of discovery, disclosure, and beyond.
In other words—they need boundaries.
Moving Beyond Betrayal is the first book in the marketplace specifically for partners affected by addictive behavior that addresses — in detail — how to identify, create, and maintain boundaries as a vital component of self-care and an indispensable tool for healing and growth.
Moving Beyond Betrayal guides partners to define the current problem(s):
- Identify needs that aren't being met
- Find where they have the power to effect change
- Take action
- Evaluate the results to determine if their goal has been accomplished
All aspects of effective boundary work are covered, including what to do when boundaries are violated.
Through working the 5-Step Boundary Solution partners will:
- Gain clarity
- Reduce the chaos inherent in relationships impacted by sex addiction
- Feel more empowered and in control of their lives
- Discover whether or not their relationship with the addict is salvageable
