An affair leaves devastation in its wake.  Help couples repair the damage with strategies that lead them on a path of hope, trust, and forgiveness.

Full Description:
When faced with the aftermath of an affair, couples often feel lost in a flood of different emotions. Research shows that the injured party most often experiences symptoms consistent with PTSD. It can be incredibly difficult for therapists to guide couples through reoccurring flashbacks, resentment, and a host of other emotions. 
This webinar offers a blueprint for using cognitive behavioral therapy to effectively treat couples dealing with infidelity. Drawing on the research of Leone (2013), Piercy, Dolbin-MacNab, Richards (2011), and others, Dr. Laura Louis provides practical tools for helping couples bring meaning to their situation and gain clarity on the risk and protective factors related to affairs. Lastly, participants discover how to instill hope in couples, and how to rebuild trust on a path to forgiveness.
