This week in the final episode of the Marriage Is Series, Havilah chats with Clint Davis who talks about trauma within a marriage and what to do if there has been a betrayal or trauma within the marriage.
What do you do if your marriage is ‘broken’?
Covid has done a number on marriages. Pastors report seeing more divorces in the past year than they have in all of their cumulative years in ministry. Why? Clint explains that up until covid and the lockdowns we had maladaptive coping skills and were able to distract ourselves until we were all given no where else to turn but our homes. It either drove people closer or the wheels came off. Listen in as Havilah and Dr. Clint discuss how we try to put bandaids over bullet holes, how important community is for healthy feedback to know whether or not your situation is truly abusive, and how to heal from betrayal trauma.
