This two-hour workshop will focus on the matter of betrayal as presented in couple therapy. A betrayal comes in many forms – sexual, financial, mismanagement of thirds, withholding of information, lying, and gas lighting. Through video and live demonstration, attendees will learn how to structure their approach as determined by the type of betrayal presented in session. The matter of the trail deserves special focus as it not only involves the experience of betrayal but also the application of an architecture the therapist uses to guide the couple toward healing.
