Infidelity is not necessarily about sex, but about secrets and the violation of trust. In this workshop, Dr. Spring will map out the trauma of an affair (or other intimate wounds) and help partners think through whether and how to reconcile.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe how infidelity can help partners face important truths about themselves.
  2. To describe how infidelity can help partners become more intimately attached.
