“A Formal Disclosure is singlehandedly the most important process that a couple can use to rebuild the relationship once discovery has occurred. Janice Caudill and Dan Drake have written a comprehensive guide that I suspect will be considered “the bible” for couples who want to do this process. This step by step guide that will allow the partner to know “the truth” in the least traumatizing format possible.
Professionals have been doing disclosures the wrong way for years and finally, clinicians, coaches, and clergy have a manual that they can learn from as it helps the couple recover from the impact of sexual betrayal.
This is a much-needed resource written by two trusted and respected clinicians and educators in the field of sex addiction and partner betrayal. I can’t wait to pass this resource onto my clients!”
