About the Event

The rocky road back to re-commitment and trust after an affair is akin to climbing a mountain. Reaching the summit looks like an impossible ascent as partners begin the long, painful journey one step at a time. Emotionally, in unfamiliar terrain, partners feel more vulnerable than ever before.

It’s hard for a therapist to remain neutral when couples come in as the result of an affair. On the surface it appears that one is the perpetrator of a terrible crime and the other is the victim. It’s natural to feel more empathy to the non-affair partner, but your role is to save the marriage. How does a therapist:

  • Support both partners?
  • Stay non-judgmental?
  • Deal with couples when one denies an affair and the other has proof?
  • Define an affair when partners’ have different points of view?
  • Know if a partner is lying or being truthful?
  • Give hope when a couple feels there may be none?

Lori Hollander, LCSW-C, BCD and Bob Hollander, JD, LCSW-C, marriage and relationship experts know the answers to these questions. About 50% of their clients come to them after one partner has discovered suspicion of or proof of infidelity.

In their presentation, they will discuss the answers to those questions and more:

  • Just what is an “affair”?
  • What are the warning signs of an affair?
  • How do affairs start?
  • Why do people cheat?
  • How do you help couples recover and rebuild trust?
  • How does forgiveness work after an affair?

Join us on for a lively presentation and discussion.
