In this episode, I talk with Dr. Debi Silber, who is the founder and CEO of the PBT Institute, which she founded to help people go through a post-betrayal transformation. She defines betrayal as a breaking of spoken or an unspoken rule in a relationship; the more you trust that person, the deeper the betrayal. After her own pain, Debi went on a personal journey to heal, and in that process, got her PhD, and studied people who had gone through a similar experience, and uncovered the steps necessary to not just get past, but to actually grow through the pain. When the person who gives you safety and security shatters it, the pain is tattooed on your heart, and the healing one goes through after a betrayal requires many different levels and layers. Betrayal impacts you physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, and you need a mutli-faceted approach to get to the truest healing. When trust is shattered, in addition to not trusting others, you don’t even know how to trust yourself, and getting back to self-trust is one of the paramount – and first – steps in creating a healing transformation. Tune in to hear Debi’s story and her deep wisdom, as she walks us through the 4 steps to rebuild your sense of self, your life and ability to be in healthy relationships once again.


Debi is the author of The Unshakable Woman: 4 Steps to Rebuilding Your Body, Mind and Life After a Life Crisis and her newest book: Trust Again: Overcoming Betrayal and Regaining Health, Confidence and Happiness.
