Women’s Three-Day Journey Workshops
The Women’s Journey Workshop:
If you are experiencing pain from betrayal in your marriage or relationship, our Women’s Journey 3-Day Workshop can provide support and help with a healing journey. The discovery of sexual addiction can leave you feeling all alone as it is so difficult to know who is helpful to talk to. At our workshop, there will be women from all over the U.S. (and sometimes abroad) who will understand you, as they, too, have a similar story to share. Finding companionship is a great gift to give yourself. The workshop will provide community with other women who are facing the pain of betrayal. It will also give you direction for healing from this trauma.
The Women’s Journey 3-Day Workshop is led by Debbie Laaser, MA, LMFT, and Beth Miller, MA, both who have been in recovery from their husbands’ sexual addiction. Today, they work extensively with women who have similar stories. Whether betrayal has been from pornography and masturbation, physical and/or emotional affairs, massage parlors, prostitution, dating websites, sexting, sharing nude photos, voyeurism, exhibitionism, same-sex connections, or sexual fetishes, this workshop can establish a program for you to focus on your own healing. Whether new to discovery and counseling, or months into your journey, there will be helpful information for you at this workshop. You do not need to know whether you are staying or not in your marriage. You may have many decisions that are not clear, as well. We welcome the messiness of the process and invite you just to begin. The teachings and experiences at the workshop will hopefully help you figure out your next right step.
There will be large and small group opportunities to learn about grieving, finding safe people, identifying coping, understanding the components of sexual addiction, and living in truth (full disclosure with your spouse). Participants will also discuss their ‘story’—family of origin experiences–learn how couples develop over time, explore trust-building, and create a plan for moving forward. Women will have the opportunity to meet others from all over the country—beautiful women—and often leave with some very close, supportive friendships that continue for a lifetime.
We believe we have created a safe, Christian environment for women to share and learn from those who have lived through the pain of infidelity. Our leaders are not only surviving the crisis of addiction but are thriving in life. While we desire to restore marriages, our focus for this workshop is on empowering women in their own journey of healing. We will seek to help women to be the best version of themselves, honoring God in all of life.
Debbie Laaser, M.A., LMFT, and Beth Miller, M.A., will co-facilitate this workshop. Debbie has been involved in recovery with her husband for over 29 years, has been co-leading support groups for women since 2000, and has led numerous workshops for couples seeking to transform their marriages after sexual addiction. She is also a lay-counselor to many women, either via phone sessions or one-on-one counseling. Debbie counsels couples together with Mark at their Faithful & True center in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. Additionally, Debbie Laaser authored the book, Shattered Vows, which was published and released in 2008, depicting her personal story of transformation, as well as, the stories of many other women she has counseled on the journey.
Beth Miller, M.A. is an experienced counselor of women who have been sexually or relationally betrayed. Beth has been on a journey of recovery with her husband, Greg, for the last 13 years and is committed to doing her own work towards health and healing while walking alongside others seeking the same. Beth co-facilitates our Women’s Journey Workshops with Debbie Laaser and also helps to lead our Couples’ Intensive Workshops with her husband, Greg, and the Laasers. For the past 10 years she has led support groups and worked one-on-one with women pursuing recovery.
Beth is also a trained spiritual director and finds healthy spirituality to be a rich and healing component of the recovery journey. Beth has been gifted with talents to nurture and minister and is truly a blessing to those seeking hope in the midst of pain and chaos.
Mark Laaser, M. Div., Ph.D., will visit our Women’s Journey Workshop to share educational information about sexual addiction.
He will also answer questions wives may have about their husband’s’ sexual addiction or compulsive behavior.
