About the event

This monthly event series is for betrayed partners who are interested in learning self-care techniques and growing their community of support.

Kitty Knight, on grief: Grief starts the moment you find out you have been betrayed. It's the 'death' of a relationship as you knew it. Per the APSATS model, you first establish safety and move to disclosure. Once through disclosure, the grief work begins. As Dr. Jake Porter states so well, "Grief is hard work, but grief is where the healing happens". My heart's desire is for you to grieve well, honor your journey, and find hope for your future.

About the speaker:

"I'm a sojourner on the partner path who, like you, didn't ask for this journey. I was one who reluctantly embraced this ongoing journey of healing. At times, with fists in the air yelling at God. At other times, on my knees weeping.

Being a partner no longer defines me. It doesn't mean I don't have the memories or scars. But as I did the hard work of healing, it has molded me into the child of God, spouse, mother of two wonderful girls, grandmother of soon to be three grandchildren, friend, and nurse that I am today.

My journey started in 1990. At that time resources were not available like they are today. Google was nonexistent and you had to search by word of mouth, textbook, or phone call. Our journey of healing was several years of what felt like an endless rollercoaster ride that would never come into a landing. During this time, I went to nursing school, graduated, and three years later God was so gracious to lead me into the specialty of Hospice. I have worked in Hospice 23 years. As I worked in Hospice, I began to see the correlation of how grieving a death was so much like my personal grieving in our  marriage. I began to study the grief journey and have had the privilege to take seminars under Dr. Wolfelt and completed my grief educator certification under David Kessler. This past year, with God's gentle prompting and along with my spouse's support, this reluctant sojourner completed APSAT training and coaching through ILCF. My heart's desire is for you to grieve well, honor your journey, and find hope for your future."
