Listen now:

We are so excited that, today, Dr. Jake Porter is joining our candid conversation. Jake is the founder of Daring Ventures and is both an APSATS certified clinical partner specialist and a CSAT (among other things).

Our discussion with Jake, today, revolves around what recovery looks like. We all know that recovery is the goal for a marriage trying to heal from problematic sexual behavior. However, recovery is an elusive entity. I get asked all the time, “What does recovery look like? How will I know he’s in recovery?” I asked those same questions and the answer I got, “You’ll know it when you see it,” felt very unsatisfying. While Pam, Lyschel, and I have definite ideas about recovery, we decided to Jake in to enrich this conversation.

We Will be Discussing:

  1. What do you define as recovery? (her recovery, his recovery – he may be doing internal stuff but he’s not doing anything relationally – and the relationship’s recovery)
  2.  What is “managing his recovery?” Is this good or bad?
  3.  How do I help my husband in his recovery? (Or Do I help my husband with his recovery?)
