LOCATIOn: SENATE ROOM
In the age of sexting, online sex, pornography, and all of the varieties and types of internet affairs, how do we as therapists help couples understand, define, and negotiate the personal and technological boundaries of fidelity and betrayal? This workshop will map out the impact of technology on couples’ struggles around what’s acceptable and what’s not, and how therapists can help clients heal from “virtual” betrayals that have real emotional repercussions. You’ll learn:
- Your definition of infidelity: does it include any sexual behavior involving a computer or technological device, even without physical contact?
- Specific interventions for working with pornography addiction, sexting, internet sex, and online infidelity
- The three phases of recovery from infidelity and how to help each partner take appropriate levels of responsibility for change
