Betrayal can be caused within relationships through extra-marital affairs or by a breech of trust.

Common reasons for betrayal include:
  • Alcohol addiction
  • Drug addiction
  • Career progression
  • Financial gain
  • Past relationships
  • Sexual affairs
  • Loss of trust
  • Revenge
  • Anger
  • Broken promises
Self-betrayal can occur if someone continually lies to themselves or is in denial of a medical condition they may be suffering.

Betrayal can occur among larger groups of people particularly in the workplace. Disgruntled employees who have been made redundant can feel lied to and betrayed by managers who have enforced job cuts. 

Betrayal isn't a condition in itself but there are strong feelings associated with it for both parties involved. Somebody who has been betrayed may feel:
  • Anger
  • Sadness
  • Confusion
  • Despair
  • Hopelessness
  • Humiliation
These feelings can trigger long-term problems such a trust issues and difficulty forming new relationships. Prolonged stress and anxiety after a betrayal may become a chronic problem leading to low self-esteem or depression.

Somebody who has betrayed someone else may experience:
  • Guilt
  • Shame
  • Embarrassment

Betrayal cannot be diagnosed but talking about your feelings with a trained therapist can help prevent any long-term problems developing.
