Treating with couples in the aftermath of marital infidelity can feel very chaotic and overwhelming. There are so many moving parts in treatment that can easily feel too dispersed to contain. The current workshop will provide a clinical framework for treatment to help clinicians navigate though the various stages of treatment, discuss the common pitfalls and challenges for clinicians in treating such couples, as well as answer some of the most common questions that arise when doing this work. There will also be a discussion about some of the unique challenges that arise when treating frum couples struggling to overcome marital infidelity.
