Through case examples, Esther Perel will show how to effectively engage such issues as intimacy, sexuality and infidelity by creating separate spaces where each partner can explore his/her feelings and experiences along with larger relationship dynamics. We will show how to navigate privacy and secrecy, honesty and transparency, stage interventions around sexual impasses, and structure a safe and flexible therapeutic environment to work effectively with infidelity.

Educational Objectives:

  1. How to create a safe and non-judgmental therapeutic environment to work with secrets, privacy, transparency and truth-telling.
  2. Present a more nuanced therapeutic approach for working with extra-marital relations past and present, fantasized or real, disclosed or withheld.
  3. Introduce two interventions for couples to rebuild trust and intimacy and to promote erotic recovery following an affair.
