One of the most challenging presentations in Couples Therapy is working with a couples in the aftermath of an infidelity. It is not surprising that this is the most requested topic of training by couples therapists.

Couples come in traumatised, shamed, furious and devastated.
Sometimes it has come out of the blue and sometimes it is the latest betrayal in a series that always ends with a promise never to stray again.
Couples are struggling with how to cope in the immediate aftermath. Needing to make some immediate decisions as to who to tell, how to keep life normal for the kids, whether to stay in the house together or if one needs to move out. The betrayed partner is wondering if they should leave the relationship or even if they can leave the relationship due to financial and family commitments. They may be wondering if they want to try to work on the relationship or if they ever can get over the impact of the affair. The person who had the affair may be feeling intense feelings of guilt and fear of losing their family. They may feel justified in the affair due to ongoing feelings of neglect in the relationship. They may be on the brink of losing the most important things in their life after a drunken night out.
No two presentations of infidelity is the same. There may have been an emotional or physical connection, a one night stand or a long term affair. The definition of what an affair is may be in contention.
In this webinar Nancy St John will bring her experience in this area to the early stages of the treatment of an affair. She will explore crisis management, evaluating the affair, how to identify the most significant issues to address and give an overview of the stages of infidelity treatment.
