Online Resources:

*Trauma Assessment:
You can take a free trauma assessment put together by Dr. Kevin Skinner (and others?) HERE.  This assessment will generate a result of low, low-moderate, moderate, moderate-high, elevated for each one of the 5 areas of PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder). About 70% of those who are sexually betrayed by a partner experience most of the symptoms of PTSD.  A moderate result simply reflects that a person is experiencing the common symptoms of trauma whereas lower or higher than moderate demonstrates experiencing fewer or more symptoms than the other participants.  Consider seeing a qualified therapist who understands trauma with scoring “moderate-high” in two or more areas. One area of “elevated” means a person should seek out qualified and specialized professional help (CSAT---Certified Sex Addiction Therapist).

*Soul Hunger Course ($25 for this 8 week online course)
These are pre-recorded classes, so go at your own pace. 77% of those who have been through the sexual infidelity of a partner admit they turn to avoidance activities such as over-eating, over-sleeping, drinking, internet surfing, etc. at least half of the time in order to stop thinking about what the spouse did (Kevin Skinner, Treating Trauma from Betrayal Trauma, 31).  Jaci masterfully teaches how to abide in Christ instead of turning to those things that will only temporarily fill us.
