With some guidance from your therapist, you should be allowed to ask whatever questions you like during the disclosure.
Important caveat: Your primary therapist does not have to be the one to do your disclosure.
Addicts should be taught how to empathize and support his traumatized wife.
Couples need guidance in how to interact with each other, set boundaries, and handle triggers early in recovery. Ask the counselor what their opinion is on clinical disclosure.
E-mails are pouring in asking for referrals to therapists who have been trained by APSATS.APSATS is a non-profit organization dedicated to the professional training and certification, public education, research and advocacy for treatment of sex addiction- induced trauma. If your husband is in recovery and you both want to stay married, ask if they support simultaneous couple’s and individual counseling.Many will say that you should both focus only on yourselves for the first several months or more and then deal with the marriage.Many partners of addicts (such as drug addicts and alcoholics) do enable addictive behavior, turn a blind eye, allow their children to be put in harm’s way by not protecting them from the addict, etc. But most partners had no idea their spouse was a sex addict for many years.They may have sensed something was not right, but had no way to prove what it was.
