Therapeutic 
Disclosure

What is a ‘Therapeutic Disclosure’?

 

A ‘therapeutic disclosure’ is where the person with the sex addiction gives a full account of their acting out behavior.  It is a process of fact finding and information gathering.  The information gathering is facilitated by a trained sex addiction therapist.  Their role is to ensure that the partner and the addicted partner are kept safe throughout the process.

Benefits for the couple

  • Draws a line under the information seeking and sharing process

  • Provides a safe space to process any additional information that may be revealed 

  • Ensures an equal relationship, without secrets, where both parties know what happened 

  • Allows decisions to be made about the future based on truth 

  • Creates greater opportunities for intimacy to grow from shared knowledge of the past

Benefits for the partner

  • Allows you to stop seeking further information

  • Creates a safe environment to explore other questions that need to be asked

  • Provides information from which personal boundaries can be considered and established

Benefits for the addicted partner

  • Draws a line under any further disclosures

  • Provides the opportunity to break through secrecy and shame

  • Removes the risk of any undisclosed information later being revealed or discovered

  • Encourages honesty and vulnerability within the relationship

  • Allows for true intimacy to develop as you are loved for who you really are, not who you are pretending to be.
