ONLINE WORKSHOP

In response to the restrictions required during the COVID-19 pandemic, Bethesda Workshops has moved to a fully online program for our individual intensives: Healing for Men, Healing for Women, and Healing for Partners. This modified format of our in-person workshops allows you to obtain the assistance you need from the safety of your home.

Description

This modified version of our in-person workshop maintains our highly effective model: teaching segments about all the aspects related to sex addiction as either an addict or a partner, individual assignments, and discussion in small groups. It is an educational and supportive format focused on Sex Addiction and Recovery 101 that continues to incorporate our grace-based Christian emphasis. The online program is not psychotherapy or a substitute for mental health treatment. It still will get you significantly down the road in understanding sex addiction as an addict or a partner and applying successful tools for change.

The online format is from 9 am-5 pm Central time during scheduled Wednesdays through Saturdays. (See each workshop section for the specific dates.)

COST: The fee for the psychoeducational/supportive online workshop is $1,400. A $500 non-refundable deposit is required for registration.
