Gottman Affair Recovery
Has your relationship, or the relationship of someone you know, experienced an emotional or sexual affair?
Once a betrayal has been discovered there are many confusing and conflicting emotional experiences for both partners. It’s hard to know where to begin when trying to recover from such a devastating event. Let us help you!
All of our couples therapy starts with an assessment and then treatment planning. You will have the opportunity to learn about the different options moving forward. Some couples know they want to stay together, and others are in a time of uncertainty. We can help facilitate these conversations and at the end of the assessment, we can discuss whether or not you want to move forward with this approach.
Our therapists use the Gottman Method of Affair Recovery which is a three stage process, consisting of “Atone, Attune and Attach”. This model helps couples create a compassionate space as both partners struggle to rebuild a damaged relationship and work to rebuild trust.
Dr. John Gottman has done significant research on the science behind trust and betrayal and this model draws from the learning. You will receive the tools needed to create trust and commitment in love relationships.
See brand new films of the Gottmans in their clinical office engaging in intensive therapy with a military couple, a case in which the husband had an affair and suffered from PTSD following his 12 back-to-back deployments overseas. Learn the important variations in assessment and intervention techniques that empower couples to not only rebuild their relationship, but also create immunity from future betrayals.
