HASH(0x8958d378) out of 5 stars Helping the Therapist with Disclosure 15 Nov. 2012
By Barbara Levinson Ph.D, LMFT,CSAT-S - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Disclosure is one of the most difficult tasks for the addict and can be the most traumatizing for the partner. Any therapist working with this population must understand the process of disclosure and the effects if not done within a structured process. The authors articulate this very well and provide a solid framework to help the partner understand the reasons for the disclosure and what some of the pitfalls are, if not done properly. This book will help the therapist in guiding the process so the most benefit will be achieved. This is a must read for all partners and certainly for all therapists working in this area. This book is a guide that answers some of the most frequently asked questions by both partners and therapists and should be given to every partner when they enter therapy, before disclosure. An excellent resource and my deepest gratitude for the authors contribution to the field."

Thank you for this treasure! I read this during the days leading up to my husband's formal disclosure; it was a valuable tool that helped me understand and prepare. I appreciate the emphasis on the trauma aspect of betrayal over the codependent model, while still providing the reasons why it is so critical for the betrayed partner to get professional support. Knowledge is power! Knowing the truth and understanding sex addiction and trusting the process of recovery is the only way to not just heal, but grow, and maybe even save your relationship. Jennifer Schneider is a pioneer in the field of sex addiction. She and Patrick Carnes are true gifts to me, my recovering husband, and the tsunami of human beings who in the future will benefit from their work in the varied manifestations of sex addiction.

HASH(0x8974e144) out of 5 stars A comprehensive overview 15 Nov. 2012
By Babaluba - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This helpful book is a companion to "Disclosing Secrets: An Addict's Guide for When, To Whom and How Much to Tell". There are several good books I recommend to my clients that address the painful process of bringing relationship secrets into the open, but this is the only one that is designed to work best as two books: one for the secret-holder and one for the partner. There is a lot of valuable information here, including many good points that apply to all situations as well as many special circumstances. I highly recommend this book as a very valuable guide through difficult times.

Sure tells it like it is, and great for educating the partner. This is a difficult subject and is handled straight forward and insightfully. Calls you on your stuff and supports you in making necessary changes. Very helpful for recovery.
HASH(0x88da3228) out of 5 stars Hope for all... 15 Nov. 2012
By Ann Foster, LCPC, CADC, CMAT - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Disclosure is one of the most difficult things anyone will do in recovery. To addicts and their partners/families, it is daunting, scary and truly seems impossible. In this book, Doctors Schneider and Corley have made the impossible not just possible but achievable. In easy and clear language they take people step-by-step through the process of disclosure.

In our practice, I have found that disclosure is what people in early recovery ask about the most. How can I tell everything and expect my partner to stay with me? Won't he/she hate me forever? How can anyone forgive me after knowing what I've done? How much do I say? Partners and other family members ask nearly all the same questions, but from the opposite perspective - How much do I want to know, how can I stay, is this really everything, and how can I ever forgive? Everyone is terrified!

Disclosing Secrets and Surviving Disclosure are comprehensive guides for addicts and their families to do what is most frightening - become honest and transparent to the ones they love. For therapists, these books are invaluable tools to help recovering addicts and their families heal from the destruction of addiction. At Millennium, we use this material not only with clients struggling with sex addiction but with all our clients who are dealing with dishonesty and secrets. The old adage, "we're as sick as our secrets" is blown to bits when disclosure happens. Thank you Jennifer and Deb for making that process easier and less scary for everyone involved, including clinicians!
