Recently, I did a Ph.D. study focusing on how women experience betrayal—what holds them back and what helps them heal. During that study, three very exciting groundbreaking discoveries were made:
The first: healing from betrayal is vastly different from healing from other types of life crises (such as the death of a loved one, disease, natural disaster, etc.).
The second: there’s a collection of physical, mental, and emotional symptoms so common to betrayal that it’s become known as Post Betrayal Syndrome.
The third: while someone can stay stuck for years, decades, or even a lifetime following a betrayal, if we’re going to fully heal we will go through five predictable and proven stages that take us from betrayal to transformation—and to a newly termed state called Post Betrayal Transformation (PBT) ®
We’ll be talking about those 5 stages and so much more on the From Betrayal to Breakthrough podcast, stay tuned!
