Dr, Steffens is a professional clinical counselor. She got her masters in 1991. She began doing a lot of crisis counseling, worked a lot with abuse of all kinds (child and adult), grief counseling and anxiety/depression. Dr. Stephens never focused on addictions. UNTIL....she had to find out how to help herself. There was next to nothing at the time and what there was told her she was co-addicted to which she disagreed.

Over the years she has worked with many women...and they are the ones who taught her about the trauma end of this issue for partners. She had worked with many traumatized people in her career. In her doctoral research (2004-2005), she studied partners and measured them for trauma symptoms. The results then fueled the book and hopefully some changes in how SA clinicians view the partner. But- that work is only just beginning.

Dr. Steffens is not a trained SA therapist. She specializes in and treats the partner.

Dr. Steffens contacted Recovery Nation to see if it would be possible to get some input from the partners here to find what you would want to see in a workbook that would go along with her book. We talked and came up with the focus group forum as a means to that end.

This is the purpose of this Focus Group Forum.
