Today’s episode of “Sex, Love, and Addiction” shares a fascinating discussion between Dr. Rob Weiss and Dr. Christine Courtois, a leader and trailblazer in the world of trauma and sexual addiction and author of numerous books including It’s Not You, It’s What Happened to You. Over the past 30 years, Dr. Courtois has developed treatment approaches for complex post-traumatic and dissociative conditions that have been ahead of their time and she is one of the first trauma professionals to create the field of modern trauma therapy. Today, they talk about both the similarities, the differences and the disconnect between the trauma and the addiction worlds. She and Dr. Rob also discuss emerging research in the field, why looking at the past can help us move forward in the future, and what support and information are out there for childhood abuse and how it may affect adult life.
