Adult Children Disclosures

Disclosures for Adult Children

We also offer disclosures for adult children of a person is healing from compulsive sexual behavior (previously known as sexual addiction) and betrayed partners

What Does This Look Like:

  • Adult children 18+ have the opportunity to ask questions to both the partner recovering from compulsive sexual behavior and the betrayed partner questions. Couches/Therapist will help adult children formulate questions as well as help the partner who is healing from compulsive sexual behavior and betrayed partner to answer questions that will solely help the adult child’s healing.

How to Prepare for It:

  • Individual session with adult child to formulate questions and process what they need in order to release said rolls and step into their own power and healing

When is it Needed and Available to Do:

  • This can be done once the partner who is healing from compulsive sexual behavior is in recovery and a betrayed partner had done their work as well and is in recovery. 
  • If partners are separated this can be done at the request of the adult child to only facilitate with one of the partners at a time. 

 

These can be done in person at the disclosure pricing or via zoom for the regular hourly rate of coach/therapist

What is a Full Disclosure?

A Formal Therapeutic Disclosure (FTD) is a clinical procedure that is carefully guided by trained therapists in a clinical setting. It is a process committed to the rebuilding of trust in relationships damaged by compulsive sexual behavior. Although it can be difficult and painful, it allows for significant gains in recovery for each spouse and for the marriage. A full disclosure differs from a disclosure, which is often a limited confession without the structure or support to get a more complete history. A full therapeutic disclosure is a process where trained professionals meticulously work with partners to do a full sexual history, allowing the betrayed partner information that was often kept from them. 

Why Would I Need a Full Disclosure?

A FTD provides a foundation to begin the process of repairing the damage done to the relationship and rebuilding trust. A FTD helps those who have acted outside of their values sexually to reclaim their long-lost integrity. In one study, 96 percent of those who struggle with compulsive sexual behavior felt FTD was the right course of treatment for them. They discovered that this process helped to dismantle a major dysfunctional core belief which Patrick Carnes explained as “no one would love me as I am (Carnes, 1983).” For those who struggle with compulsive sexual behavior, it is imperative to heal this belief. To be fully known and yet, still fully loved, goes a long way toward healing this core belief—a major goal of treatment. With the held sexual secrets, there is only a false front, only denial, and little chance for healing.  After FTD (and no longer burdened with secrets), many of those struggling with compulsive sexual behavior report new-found freedom and peace.

Having a Formal Therapeutic Disclosure is also a question of ethics. As human beings, we are all entitled to certain rights. Among these is the right to relationship choice and freedom from exploitation in the relationship. Informed consent is a concept which entitles each person to all information which bears upon their well-being, including informed choice to continue in a relationship. This is a fundamental individual right.
