Dr. Spring and Dr. Nelson teach a model focused on healing, and creating and reinventing an erotic connection after the hurt and betrayal of infidelity.  After an affair, partners may struggle to come together sexually, to find trust and safety and to get over the erotic injury.  We discuss ways to integrate the experience and move forward into a new vision of erotic recovery, creating a new sexual connection.

Memories, intrusive thoughts and traumatic flashbacks can interfere with healing, and we share interventions that have worked with couples in our own practice as well as practical tools to help with the post-trauma and how to help couples move through the stages of healing and recovery after infidelity into a full, more passionate relationship with each other.
