Description

Infidelity lays waste to relationships in countless ways. The injured party most often experiences trauma in unwanted memories, flashbacks, upsetting dreams, and severe emotional distress. The person who cheats may be coping with emotions of guilt, shame, and hopelessness. It can be incredibly difficult for therapists to guide couples through these intense emotions.

The process of moving couples from feelings of betrayal to feelings of forgiveness does not happen overnight, but reconciliation is possible with the right blueprint. Dr. Laura Louis presents that blueprint in this informative and engaging recording. Learn how to draw the plans for healing, starting with a foundation of important guidelines for both partners. Add the necessary supports including cognitive behavioral therapy, to help the partners process their feelings and to buttress the relationship against triggers for infidelity.  Install atonement and accountability as security measures to protect against resentment and defensiveness.
