Has someone you depended on, whether it be a spouse, parent, friend, or business, betrayed your trust or let you down? Has someone who held a position of power and safety in your life violated your wellbeing? These scenarios have a unique component: A survivor not only experiences abuse, neglect, or wrongdoing, but they also depend on the perpetrator for support and safety. Examples may include childhood trauma, infidelity, or being a partner of someone with sex or porn addiction. This unique experience is called betrayal trauma, and suffering can take many troubling forms including a sense of disconnection and emptiness, a lost sense of self, and intrusive thoughts.
