HEALING BROKEN BONDS AND BETRAYALS: EMOTIONALLY FOCUSED THERAPY AND THE TREATMENT OF INFIDELITY

Infidelity is a frequent presenting concern in couple therapy.  Although a common reason given for divorce, many couples seek treatment to heal their relationship rather than seek its end as a result of an affair.  This symposium will review couple therapy practices used in treating affairs and explore the treatment of infidelity using Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy.  

Infidelity may result in a breach of trust leading to devastating consequences for couples. EFT conceptualizes infidelity as a type of "attachment injury" where a fundamental breach of trust inhibits partner's ability to resolve an affair and potential long standing patterns of distance and distress.  EFT provides a multi-step approach to resolving attachment injuries that has demonstrated empirical support resolving attachment injuries and moving couples toward healing. 

This workshop provides practical direction in treating infidelity as an attachment injury. The presentation includes original research examining the relationship of attachment security and recovery from infidelity along with video and case demonstrations by the presenters illustrating key moments in the process of resolving injuries as a result of affairs.
