In this episode of Overcoming Betrayal and Addiction, Dr. Rob and Tami first address a wife whose sex addicted husband has trouble comforting her when she’s upset or showing emotion. She says she feels like a circus freak when asking for her emotional needs to be met. Dr. Rob and Tami discuss how empathy is both practiced and learned and how addiction recovery can help people learn to cope with their feelings and seek out true connections. They then take questions about rebuilding trust once you’ve broken it, why someone that is sexually addicted may retract their admittance that they have an issue, and whether all sex addicts have had childhood trauma.
