Some women are suffering from the trauma of a loved one’s pornography addiction. Some with the trauma of infidelity. Fortunately, many women find healing and strength as they spend time with other women who empathize and understand their struggle.
Since experiencing her own life changing trials and trauma of this kind, Jacy Clemons Boyack has sought to unite and empower women bearing similar burdens, offering them a sisterhood of community, healing and hope. She founded the Togetherness Project, a nonprofit organization (501(c)(3)) that empowers women to rise above these unexpected hardships by providing encouragement, education and community. She says,
“As more and more tragic stories of heartbreak, betrayal, and even broken families surface due to the presence of pornography addiction and/or infidelity in their relationships, the most brave and resilient of women are taking a stand! We are uniting, we are speaking out, and we are weathering the storm and searching for peace, together.
“We are a movement of trailblazers aiming to dispel the shame and isolation commonly felt, by replacing it with courage and sisterhood.
“So, whoever you are, whatever your age, or wherever you are in the process of uncertainty (recovering with your partner, healing after divorce, in the strangeness of ‘limbo’, or trying to figure out what it all means in your life), we invite you to join us at our semi-annual women’s conference.”
It’s being held October 17th at the South Towne Expo Center in Sandy.
Suncrest Counseling’s clinical director, Mark Chamberlain, Ph.D., will be among the speakers at the event. He’ll be speaking about how to work together as couples to ensure that sex after trauma is about connection and healing. His other presentation at the conference will cover how to handle panic and trauma flashbacks when unexpected triggers bring back the fear in full force.
