This is science- and research-based material with a compassionate perspective. I would have liked to see more detailed references to literature and studies. The advice is sound, practice-based, and very helpful. The perspective and compassion is long overdue.
I am so thankful I found this book and purchased it. I know I will be reading it again and again whenever I feel the need to rework the trauma and take better care of myself.

After I found out about my husbands betrayal, I read and researched all I could. I attended counselling, and joined a 12 step program for partners. The counselling which was helpful at first, turned into a damaging excersice. The 12 step program eroded my sanity and my sense of self.
The traditional model says us partners are "co-addicts", "co-dependant", and "enablers" of our husbands secret lives. While I do agree, some peole are this way, and have lived knowing for years about thier husbands activities and choose to look the other way. These women can and likly will benifit from the traditional model.
This book looks at the "trauma model". The partners are caught in a horrifying circle of trauma, which involves trying to find safety, trying to figure out whats going on, trying to protect ourselves. We are not labeled with damaging labels, not asked to wait for god to help us, not told we are sick. It echoes the feelings we feel, and the thoughts we have, while offering a gentle hand of understanding rather than condemnation.
I am actually considering buying another copy to give to my ex-counellor in hope he can see the truths in it, and stop damaging other women with his damaging rhetoric.
