when partners swing from rage to despair, and precipitously drop out of therapy. In this workshop, you’ll learn a highly effective way to help couples transcend the trauma of infidelity and feel less discouraged, crazy, ashamed, self-righteous, and alone. We’ll discuss a pathbreaking approach for managing secrets and helping partners decide how much information about the affair to share. You’ll find out how to help the unfaithful and the hurt partner take responsibility for their share of the marital damage, and discover how to help couples use lessons from the affair to rebuild trust, rekindle intimacy and connection, and earn forgiveness. We’ll also discuss how to assist them in making a thoughtful decision about whether to fight to save the marriage or end it.
