Even the most experienced therapist can feel overwhelmed by couples struggling with infidelity. The goal of this conference is to present a wide range of clinical thinking about treating infidelity from the best experts on the subject; to offer the latest research on the science of trust and betrayal; to illustrate clear examples
of how to treat couples struggling with this crisis; and to have provocative dialogue as the faculty discuss the similarities/differences in their approaches.
We will discuss the complexities of monogamy and the motivations behind infidelity, as well as the values of the therapist, which affect clinical decisions. There will be a focus on the impact of technology on infidelity, managing secrets and how much detail about the affair to disclose, and the erotic recovery for a couple after an affair. You will learn the most current methods for helping a couple best determine whether the legacy of an affair will be simply survival, a break-up, or a transformative experience for the relationship.
