Infidelity Counselling - A Case Study of Managing Feelings on the Job

With Dr Iona Abrahamson

This is some text inside of a div block.

It is important to know more about how to manage infidelity counselling because infidelity is one of the most difficult problems for therapists to work with and why most people seek counselling.

Contemporary research shows that infidelity is a common phenomenon with serious consequences for relationships. While infidelity counselling may be beneficial for clients, many therapists feel inadequately prepared to treat the devastating effects that infidelity can have on individuals, couples, families and societies.

A reason for this is that dealing with these effects is emotionally laden work. This workshop will give insight into the lived experience of a therapist working with a family affected by infidelity, linking theory to practice. Using a narrative inquiry approach, participants will be introduced to the ethical challenges faced by therapists and the novel notion of “emotional labour” (Hochschild, 1983/2003) in which people interpret, manage and (re)construct their own emotions.

This workshop will introduce participants to a unique understanding of infidelity counselling.

This course is made up of two components: 
      - A video component (1hr03mins)
      - An assessment component (multiple choice questions)

Upon the completion of this training, you will receive a Digital Certificate of Completion
