Loving an Addict with the Prodependence Model, with Kim Buck

In this episode of Sex, Love, and Addiction 101, Dr. Robert Weiss welcomes Kim Buck, Certified Sex Addiction Therapist and Clinical Director of Family Strategies Counseling Center. Dr. Rob and Kim discuss the differences between the prodependence and codependence models, the interesting results Kim is achieving with prodependence, and what is helpful for partners to understand when dealing with betrayal and loving an addict. Rob and Kim also share why the prodependence model gives betrayed partners support and compassion in crisis rather than judgment or blame (as we see with the codependency model).
