Release of Liability
PoSARC is an educational site designed to help you help yourself. We offer our experiences, insights and our skills as Coaches so that you may embrace healing from the devastation that being partnered with a sex addict/compulsive often brings with it. While our Coaches have all agreed to complete formal coaching certification, specializing in both addiction and relationship coaching and stand competent to help you explore complex issues related to your recovery from living with a sex addict/compulsive, we are not licensed to manage mental health and do not offer advice that is intended to do so.
—We at PoSARC always attempt to observe the strict differences between coaching responsibilities and counseling. Our goal is to provide coaching that is solely intended to help others to find, learn and apply sound healing principles into their lives, striving always to maintain objective observations and feedback. Towards that end, we utilize a broad variety of learning tools and techniques that help guide you towards your own inner resources.
—We at PoSARC recognize and it is imperative that you understand and acknowledge that it is your own responsibility to manage your mental health. This includes necessary testing and availing yourself of outside support, such as the services of a licensed therapist or support group. Coaching supplements rather than replaces these other support systems.
—We at PoSARC are not licensed to diagnose or treat any mental health disorders. If the need becomes obvious to us, we will share our general opinions and encourage you to seek counseling with a licensed health professional.
—In the event you are under the care of a licensed mental health professional and any conflict arises between their recommendations and those of a Coach here at PoSARC, it is your responsibility to follow the guidance of your licensed mental health professional. Should any conflict in judgment occur, we will always defer to their judgment. In the event their judgment as represented by you appears to be harmful to you, we will encourage you to confront them for an explanation.
—We at PoSARC do not offer professional counseling in any form. Because sex addiction and the relationships between compulsives/addicts and their loved ones can be so highly complex, the distinction between coaching and counseling can sometimes blur. If our coaches realize at any time that they may have crossed that line and as humans it sometimes can occur, you may expect them to honestly admit that and help you resolve any resulting issues with your licensed professional counselor. Additionally, please contact us immediately if you feel your Coach has crossed that line.
All correspondence with PoSARC (including e-mail addresses) will be kept in strictest confidence and not released to anyone else, except if:
- You are expressing homicidal or suicidal thoughts.
- You state that you or your partner are currently engaging in felony behavior that victimizes others, such as child molestation, child pornography, rape, etc.
