That is what we will share with you in this course.We will go over the theoretical framework underlying how we work in therapy with Long-term Love Relationships in general as well as in the treatment of infidelity couples, specifically.In the last five years, the research has included looking at possible contributors such as culture, attachment styles, different types of infidelity including cyber infidelity, personality aspects of those who are unfaithful, and efficacy of therapy. Research reviews consistently document the rate of infidelity, that is respondents reporting having sex with someone other than their spouse while married, ranging between 22 and 25% for men and 11 to 15% for women (Allen et al., 2005; Mark, Janssen & Milhausen, 2011).At times the research has indicated that the rate of infidelity among married couples is quite high across the board – 45-55% of married women and 50-60% of married men engage in extramarital sex at some time during their relationships (Atwood & Schwartz, 2002).
It is generally believed that infidelity is more common for men compared to women. Social workers should contact their regulatory board to determine course approval.Of course, many couples never make it into couples therapy after infidelity has been discovered or revealed. Most often, the couple tries to deal with (or not deal with) the infidelity on their own.Researchers Blow & Harnett (2005) took a comprehensive look at prevalence of infidelity and concluded that in any given year the likelihood of a relationship suffering from an affair is low – probably less than a 6 percent chance.In a research finding particularly relevant to couples therapists, Glass and Wright (1988) looked specifically at the population of couples seeking therapy and reported that 50-65% of them initiated therapy as result of an infidelity. conducted a meta-analysis of 50 studies and reported that 34% of men and 24% of women have engaged in extramarital activities.We will also cover specific treatment strategies and techniques.Both short-term and long-term infidelity couples treatment issues will be addressed, from the process of healing from the trauma of infidelity through helping the couple restructure and rebuild its LTLR on a foundation of real intimacy.Not only is infidelity one of the most difficult issues faced by couples, but it is also viewed by couples therapists as one of the most damaging problems couples face and one of the most difficult problems to treat (Heintzelman, Murdock, Krycak & Seay, 2014).An interesting fact about extramarital affairs and divorce is that the divorced spouse rarely marries the affairee who caused the marriage break up, and even when s/he does, the resulting marriage has a greater likelihood of ending in divorce (75%) (Pittman, 1989).How do couples accomplish this in the face of the heartbreaking destructive force of infidelity, the ultimate relationship betrayal?How do we as therapists guide them through this daunting and challenging process?
