Editorial Reviews


"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!”—Pia Mellody, Senior Clinical Advisor for The Meadows and author of Facing Codependence, Facing Love Addiction, and The Intimacy Factor

“Vicki Tidwell Palmer explains in a straightforward, useful way both why and how betrayed partners can set meaningful and empowering boundaries—limits that can aid not only their own healing, but also that of the addict and their relationship. This book is a must read for anyone who has been negatively affected by a loved one’s sexually addictive behavior.”—Robert Weiss, LCSW, CSAT-S, Founder of the Sexual Recovery Institute and author of Sex Addiction 101, and Always Turned On

“Finally. THE book to help partners of sex addicts reclaim the most powerful part of their life after suffering from intimate betrayal. Following Tidwell Palmers’ compassionate, no-nonsense guidance will insure the discovery of a vital, healthy sense of self.”—Alexandra Katehakis, Founder and Clinical Director, Center for Healthy Sex, and co-author of Mirror of Intimacy: Daily Reflections on Emotional and Erotic Intelligence

“A survival manual for partners of sex addicts, with step-by-step instructions on coping with betrayal, trauma, and how to set boundaries. Vicki’s 5-Step format teaches partners to set boundaries that are empowering, and promote self-care and self-love. This book will be essential reading for recovering partners. I highly recommend it.”—Stefanie Carnes, PhD, LMFT, author of Mending a Shattered Heart: A Guide for Partners of Sex Addicts

“Vicki Tidwell Palmer has filled a void in partner literature, and provided an extremely helpful resource for those who discover they are in a relationship with a sex addict. This clear guide on the purpose of boundaries and how to craft and set them will equip and empower partners of sex addicts to use boundaries wisely and well.”—Marsha Means, MA, author of the Journey to Healing and Joy: A Workbook for Partners of Sexual Addicts

Moving Beyond Betrayal eloquently offers partners a necessary distinction between powerlessness and finding the power to act. A much-needed ingredient for reclaiming the lost ‘self’ post betrayal. Vicki’s words guide a wounded heart back to respite and healing.”—Kelly McDaniel, LPC, NCC, CSAT, author of Making Advances: A Comprehensive Guide for Treating Female Sex and Love Addicts

“An important resource for wounded partners who are trying to find their way out of the maze of trauma caused by their partner’s sex addiction. Vick Tidwell Palmer has made an important contribution to the body of recovery literature.”
Dr. Milton S. Magness, D. Min., author of Stop Sex Addiction: Real Hope, True Freedom for Sex Addicts and Partners
