Stories that Hurt and Stories that Heal

Presented by Dr. Wayne Perry - 1 CE Hours

Workshop Description:
 The author conducted a phenomenological investigation of a sample of his own clients to answer the question, why do some people choose to stay married following an affair, while other people chose to end the marriage. Using a retrospective analysis of clinical records, the author uncovered common themes in both groups. There was, however, one significant difference that predicted which way the couple would decide. Based on this discovery, the author makes some suggestions for clinical practice with couples following an affair.
