Workshhop Title: Mending Broken Fences:   A Clinician’s Blueprint to Teach Couples How to Heal After Infidelity (Ethics)

Workshop Description: 

REBUILDING TRUST FROM THE RUBBLE OF INFIDELITY
Infidelity lays waste to relationships in countless ways. The injured party most often experiences trauma in unwanted memories, traumatic flashbacks, upsetting dreams, and severe emotional distress. The person who cheats may be coping with emotions of guilt, shame, and hopelessness. It can be incredibly difficult for therapists to guide couples through these intense emotions.

The process of moving couples from feelings of betrayal to feelings of forgiveness does not happen overnight, but reconciliation is possible with the right blueprint. Dr. Laura Louis presents that blueprint in this informative and engaging seminar. Learn how to draw the plans for healing, starting with a foundation of important guidelines for both partners. Add the necessary supports including cognitive behavioral therapy, to help the partners process their feelings and to buttress the relationship against triggers for infidelity. Install atonement and accountability as security measures to protect against resentment and defensiveness.

Learning Objectives

  1. Explain the motivating factors behind infidelity.
  2. Determine the correct questions to be asked when assessing a relationship after an affair has occurred.
  3. Apply cognitive behavioral therapy to assist couples in processing feelings about the affair.
  4. Outline a plan for managing triggers for infidelity.
  5. Describe the therapist’s role in facilitating forgiveness
