About this Talk
Join Dr. Jake as he interviews Marsha Means, a leader in the treatment of partners of sex addicts.
Many recovering sex addicts achieve sobriety, only to discover it's not enough to meet their wives' needs. She complains that she feels alone in the marriage and disconnected, which generally leaves him confused and not knowing what to do to keep her happy. The problem is that many men don't know how to form a secure attachment with their partner, and few resources are available that connect the dots and give men the tools they need to understand attachment.
Simultaneously, even wives who understand the problem often lack the personal empowerment skills needed to confidently ask for what they need. Sadly, attachment disorders often present a second barrier to a mutually fulfilling marriage, and sometimes end the marriage even when a man has maintained sobriety over time.
Marsha's latest book dismantles that second barrier. Tested with real men resulting in overwhelmingly positive growth, resources are now available to all who need help in this area of their relationship. And wives can gain the empowerment necessary to motivate their husbands to remove that second barrier to true marital fulfillment for both partners.
