Wickedly Smart Women

Jan 29, 2020

All life crises are not created equal. Betrayal is unique in the way it shatters the foundation of our relationships and sense of safety and security. After all, when the people you trust the most prove untrustworthy, who do you trust? And according to Dr. Debi Silber, time doesn’t necessarily heal the wounds of betrayal unless we actively rebuild our sense of belonging, confidence and worthiness.

Debi is the holistic psychologist and personal development expert behind The Post-Betrayal Transformation (PBT) Institute, a platform and training program dedicated to helping people heal from a betrayal. She is also the author of the bestseller The Unshakable Woman: 4 Steps to Rebuilding Your Body, Mind and Life After a Life Crisis. Debi has shared the groundbreaking discoveries of her PhD study around how women experience betrayal on FOX, CBS, The Dr. Oz Show and the TEDx stage, and she is on a mission to help women move past their betrayals—once and for all.

On this episode, Debi joins Emerald to explain how her study of betrayal was inspired by personal experience and share her vision to certify a host of PBT practitioners around the globe. She walks us through the three discoveries that emerged from her research on what differentiates betrayal from other life crises and describes how we can regain our sense of control in its aftermath. Listen in to understand why so many of us get stuck in what Debi calls the survival stage of healing and learn how to shed your bitterness, improve your health, and stage your own post-betrayal transformation!
