When You’re The One Who Cheats Workshop
March 2, 2019 – 9 am – 5 pm
Held at : The Chicago School of Psychology – Washington, DC
The debut workshop based on the new infidelity book by Dr. Tammy Nelson!
The NY Times called Dr. Tammy Nelson “a renegade of couples therapy.”
The decision to cheat usually comes well before the actual adultery. Even if they tell themselves the cheating is impulsive – the affair has most likely been planned for a while. It’s rare for people to cheat without some prior consideration and without any forethought or planning. Often therapists and counselors struggle to handle the complexities of infidelity and we can get stuck looking judgmentally at affairs and those who engage in them. We may think that cheating is just wrong and should stop. But what if we examined the situation through a non-pathological lens, examining the reasons and choices surrounding the infidelity? What if we could look for the relationship growth that is possible in the wake of an infidelity?
Join the expert on adultery for a full day of training where you will learn a non-pathological view of cheating, its permutations, and how to help your clients evaluate the situation and their choices. There are choices within the cheater’s world and Dr. Nelson will help you learn how to guide cheaters through:
- Deciding if they should end the affair or the marriage
- Examining the reasons for engaging in infidelity
- Recovering the power of choice in relationships
- Simple exercises to reclaim personal integrity
- How to make decisions that impact their future
When You’re The One Who Cheats: Ten Things You Need to Know contains the real-life stories from cheaters. Their honesty and courage helped me gain perspective and understand the truth about infidelity – that it can be a way to stay in a marriage and a way to get out. This is a book designed for anyone having an affair or indiscretion of any kind and who is confused, unsure and looking for answers. As therapists we need a new perspective on how to ethically and compassionately work with clients on this all too common problem. The aim of infidelity counseling should be to help the cheating partner find clarity and make choices that create a joyful life that works.
Designed for: Therapists, counselors, mental health practitioners seeking to develop their knowledge of the field of human sexuality.
