Texas’ first therapeutic men’s intimacy anorexia recovery group is set to begin January 2017 in McKinney. Although the Dallas-Ft. Worth and surrounding areas have a strong therapeutic and 12 Step recovery community for sex, love and pornography addiction, recovery resources for those who also struggle with intimacy anorexia (IA) are rare and therapist led support groups non-existent.
The men’s IA group will be the first of it’s kind in Texas. It is led by Dr. Janice Caudill, a CSAT and the first certified IAT (Intimacy Anorexia Therapist) in the state. The IA group will have a work-group format, with members completing workbook exercises specifically designed for IA recovery.
Participants will have the opportunity to practice intimacy-boosting skills and well as learning trigger-busting strategies that help defuse the anger and emotional intensity that intimacy deprived spouses often feel. The men’s group builds in support, feedback, and accountability for strengthening both IA and sexual recovery.
The group will meet twice a month on Thursdays from 7:30 to 9:00 pm. Membership requires an initial evaluation. Contact McKinney Counseling & Recovery for details.
