Facing the Shadow
The Details: The FTS Intensive is a workshop designed to help individuals dealing with problematic or unwanted sexual behaviors kickstart their healing journey toward recovery. Using the powerful Facing the Shadow workbook (Patrick Carnes) as a guide, participants will gain an understanding of where their compulsive sexual behavior comes from and learn what the cycle of addiction looks like. They will develop practical tools for establishing sobriety, create a recovery plan, and address the challenges they can expect to meet along the recovery journey. In a large group setting participants will hear from a credentialed CSAT (Certified Sex Addiction Therapist) counselor and then be able to implement and process the material in smaller groups of trained therapists.
The format: 3 separate, day-long intensives held on one Saturday every few weeks this spring. Weekly drop-in groups are led by the Intensive counselors and are optional for participants to further explore the content and connect deeper with other participants. Participants can expect a combination of group teaching and small group processing.
The staff: Tim Burkholder (MA, LMHC, CSAT), Scotty Alderman (MA, LMHC, CSAT-Candidate), Parker Johnson (MA, LMHC, CSAT-Candidate), Anthony Barrett (MA, Bethesda-trained)
The location: All Saturday sessions will be held at the Charis Counseling Center offices located in the community of Baldwin Park, Orlando. The optional weekly drop-in groups will be held in an online, virtual format.
The dates: Saturday March 11, April 1, and April 22, 2023. All three sessions are required. The workshop will start at 9:00 am each day, and participants can expect to be finished no later than 6:00 pm.
The cost: Each session is $475 which includes all materials and lunch. There is a $225 discount for paying for all three sessions upfront.
