Talal Alsaleem, LMFT, founder of the Infidelity Counseling Center, has created this workshop to help clinicians of all levels conceptualize and treat infidelity from the framework of trauma. Working with couples in crisis can be overwhelming for new and seasoned clinicians, especially when it comes to working with clients struggling with infidelity who are often in extreme emotional distress and feeling lost and hopeless about the future of their relationship.
The knowledge base you will gain from this workshop as well as the clinical interventions you will learn are based on extensive clinical work with couples dealing with infidelity. Completing this workshop will expand your understanding of the process of healing and give you the clinical tools you need to help your clients recover individually or as a couple.
Learning Objectives – After completion of the presentation the attendees will:
1. Participants will recognize the psychological and physical impact of affairs.
2. Participants will identify types of affairs and distinguish the different causes behind each type.
3. Participants will learn about the seven milestones of healing from infidelity and articulate the specific intervention needed to complete each milestone.
