Many clinicians recognized that they need additional experience and training to effectively work with couples, particularly with interventions for infidelity. This workshop will teach an assessment process for identifying the trauma responses of discovery of infidelity and how these responses are similar to the diagnostic criteria of PTSD. Participants will learn the therapeutic protocol and stages for treatment of infidelity from a systemic perspective as well as a trauma-informed approach. Emphases will be placed on assessing and managing the early crisis of discovery and subsequent treatment of the underlying relational precipitants to the affair. Participants will also learn specific interventions for each stage of the treatment protocol.
