If you work with couples, you’re no stranger to infidelity. And because healing from infidelity is challenging, it behooves us to have a clear roadmap of the territory. In this workshop, we’ll go over an array of post-affair issues, including ways to deal with intense emotions, whether to discuss the details of the betrayal, how to begin rebuilding trust in the aftermath of the discovery, whether to have clinical ultimatums about ending affairs, how to handle setbacks, and how to deal with residual feelings for the affair partner. We’ll explore a step-by-step treatment plan and discuss how to tailor it to each couple’s unique needs. You’ll learn methods for overcoming the most common therapeutic impasses—hopelessness engendered by setbacks, debates about the value of discussing the affair, and ongoing dishonesty. You’ll discover the nuances involved in deciding how much disclosure is best for each couple and gain a greater understanding of the spiraling, zigzag nature of recovery. By the time you leave, you’ll know how to coach couples through a structured healing process that’s flexible and adaptable.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Review what both the unfaithful and betrayed spouse must do to heal from infidelity.
  2. Discuss & practice what to do when disclosure is made during an individual session.
  3. Name and discuss methods for overcoming the most common impasses in helping couples heal from infidelity.
