My husband is a dismissive-avoidant and it's causing him a lot of problems. He's been escaping in many ways, including through addiction. He currently feels completely blocked and withdrawn and like he's never had emotions and will never have them again.
He wants to change this but thinks he will need some help to do so. Does anyone have any recommendations for therapy or treatments they've tried which has worked? He's been having general counselling for years but this hasn't improved so I think he may need something more attachment focused.
If you haven't already done so, go check the "general discussion" part of this forum, anne12 has been posting marvelous articles/advice/exercises. As for counseling, I've heard there are therapists who work specifically on the attachment theory, I have no experience on that to share, but I'm sure there are many people here who can guide you through the process of choosing one.
I'm glad that your husband is trying to change! All the best!
