Janis Abrahms Spring • Friday Morning
As though affairs in the flesh weren’t challenging enough to treat, click to affairs in cyberspace. Drawing from cutting-edge research, this workshop will provide concrete and practical answers to such potentially explosive questions as: What constitutes an affair—sexual intercourse or sexting? When is cybersex a sign of sexual addiction and what makes cyberrelationships so seductive? Do cyberaffairs mean something different to men and women? After a cyberaffair, how do couples rekindle trust? We’ll explore how to deal with secrets between partners and why an understanding of contributing factors can offset further affairs. You’ll learn a trust-building exercise that helps couples recommit after a cyberaffair, and you’ll leave the workshop with a lot more answers to the thorny questions raised by affairs—in the real world and the cyberworld.
