    Introduction to Systemic Affair Recovery Therapy

    with Dr. Talal H. Alsaleem

    November 7, 8:30 am - 12:00 pm


    Working with couples in crisis can be overwhelming for new as well as 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. Giving counselors effective tools to deal with the trauma of infidelity will make them feel empowered, energized, and confident in their ability to help guide their clients during such difficult times.

    Completing this workshop will expand your understanding of the process of healing and introduce you to the clinical tools you need to help your clients recover from the trauma of infidelity. 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.

    Specific learning objectives include the following:

    • Participants will be able to describe four core principles of infidelity counseling.
    • Participants will be able to list the seven milestones of healing from infidelity.
    • Participants will be able to describe three clinical treatment challenges of infidelity counseling.
    • Participants will be able to list three limitations of the current treatment methods for infidelity counseling.
