Betrayal Trauma Recovery
Betrayal Trauma Recovery is a daily support group, with multiple sessions a day in multiple time zones. BTR also provides a free educational podcast for women needing immediate emotional refuge from the pain and chaos caused by their husband’s lying, gaslighting, manipulation, porn use, cheating, infidelity, emotional abuse, and narcissistic traits.
At BTR, we affirm that abuse is a human rights issue, affecting the lives of all people, regardless of age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, class, religion, and any other differentiating characteristics. We acknowledge and hold pain for all people suffering from the effects of abuse. Because abuse is such a wide-spread issue, we have segmented a portion of the abuser-survivor populace to serve only women abused by men.
We understand that the pronouns that we use, as well as the subject matter that we cover may not be completely relevant to all victims. However, we invite all to read, listen, and find hope, healing, and safety in the free Betrayal Trauma Recovery podcast and website.
All of our betrayal trauma coaches are trained, certified, and have personal experience.
What We Believe In
BTR aims to protect women from emotional abuse, psychological abuse, and sexual coercion.
BTR aims to build a world-wide army of healthy women empowered to create, set, and hold boundaries to stop abuse.
