But tell me does she kiss
Like I used to kiss you
Does it feel the same
Infidelity is a common presenting problem in couple therapy and is often the precipitating factor in a referral. Dissatisfaction with the relationship may have been on low boil for years but an affair catapults the couple into a crisis.
Affairs present particular ethical and technical challenges to the therapist and this practical seminar will examine these, together with the underlying unconscious processes which may be at the heart of the difficulties.
Affairs can have myriad meanings and purposes and can represent developmental hope as well as destructive wishes both for the individual and the relationship. Some affairs end quickly, but at other times one partner finds it almost impossible to give up the relationship which can present a considerable dilemma to the therapist.
The workshop will include an examination about the wider evidence for successful therapy with affairs, along with clinical vignettes from both couple and individual work, video material and group discussion.
