Episode 55: Out of the Dog House with Rob Weiss

October 16, 2017

*This episode is marked explicit because it does contain references to human sexuality and words that some might find offensive- we find that the material is still relevant to our audience and sometimes these topics are best served in frank, adult conversations*

Jon and Jackie welcome Rob Weiss (@robweissmsw) to the podcast.  Rob is an accomplished author, therapist, and advocate for sex addicts in recovery.  Today we talk to Rob about his newest book Out of the Dog House: A Step-by-Step Relationship-Saving Guide for Men Caught Cheating.  Our conversation explores the experience of the spouse who has been cheated on as well as the experience of the person who has done the cheating including what happens for both at discovery/disclosure, initial steps to take for stabilization, and changes and growth that can happen in a relationship post-infidelity.
