The Annual New England Betrayal Trauma Conference and Online Community provide a Christ-centered, trauma-informed, loving space where devastated and traumatized partners of sexual betrayal, abandonment, and/or domestic violence can be encouraged, refreshed, validated, and healed in a warm group setting. As leaders, our goal is to empathize, empower, and educate as we help women accept and love themselves, become more self-aware and attuned to their intrinsic worth, and work on their weaknesses while rejoicing in their strengths.
We offer a supportive community which honors the experiences of each person, builds them up in a non-judgmental environment, and considers the greater good of the whole group. We do not defame pastors or organizations, and we do uphold the sanctity and institution of marriage. When that sacred vow has been broken, we educate betrayed partners on how starting anew can begin.
"Two are better than one, for if either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has nobody to help her up. A three-fold cord is not easily broken." Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
Our Online Community Leaders Are...
We look to the Lord's example of loving those in messy situations and not fearing association with them. We practice integrity, willingness to get involved, and sincere compassion.
We provide safe space to mourn, to find empowerment, and to receive empathy, and we believe in the neuroplasticity of the brain, given time, tools, therapies, treatment, and resources.
Our community provides a sense of belonging and acceptance through the power of a likeminded group of authentic, and kind-hearted women. Through this sisterly connection, some of our attachment wounds can heal.
4. Take a Multi-Dimensional Approach
This approach honors the whole person. This model provides powerful tools to help with emotional and spiritual regulation, and psychological, physical and relational healing.
5. In Favor of Partnering with Men
We partner with organizations supporting those with sexual integrity/sexual addiction issues. We honor their willingness to fight these battles and we strive to reduce shame, which is always counterproductive.
6. Do Not Use Formulas & Absolutes
We commit to not present our story as a formula for success when the outcome is favorable and to not generalize every addict or every partner.
WE HONOR EACH WOMAN IN HER UNIQUE JOURNEY!
