Stories That Inspire Us / The Author Series, welcomed to today’s podcast, Wednesday, April 26, 2023, Dr. Debi Silber. Dr. Silber is the Founder of the PBT (Post Betrayal Transformation) Institute and is a holistic psychologist, a health, mindset and personal development expert, the author of Trust Again, and is a 2-time #1 International bestselling author of: The Unshakable Woman AND From Hardened to Healed. Her podcast: From Betrayal to Breakthrough is also globally ranked within the top 1.5% of podcasts.
Her recent PhD study on how we experience betrayal made 3 groundbreaking discoveries that changes how long it takes to heal. In addition to being on FOX, CBS, The Dr. Oz Show, TEDx (twice) and more, she’s an award-winning speaker and coach dedicated to helping people move past their betrayals as well as any other blocks preventing them from the health, work, relationships, confidence, and happiness they want most.
From Dr. Debi’s own personal experience, to the “Fab 14” (the raw and vulnerable stories shared by Dr. Debris clients), betrayal is a vulnerable wound that can last literally for years. Part of initially not understanding the human perspective behind being betrayed stems from the fact that we have to know the “why” we are blindsided. That is not easy.
From the Introduction in her book: Trust Again, Dr. Debi’s own personal story of betrayal to the (3) discoveries, is a grieving process. They say time heals all wounds but that in most cases is not accurate. In fact, Dr. Debi shared the results from staggering percentage statistics from the responses to her Quiz on her website.
There are many faces of betrayal; it creates chaos but there is hope in knowing that you can turn your betrayal into a positive life change; however, YOU must put in the work and go through the (5) stages. (Dr. Debi describes the stages in great detail.) She points out that in Stage 3, where the survival instincts start to emerge, this is the most common place where people remain stuck.
To take the risk to love is to expose yourself to possible betrayal. Dr. Debi Silber
