    To Be Released from Debt: An Experiential Model of Forgiveness and Healing For Couple Infidelity


    Saturday, February 20th, 2021

    9 a.m. through 12 noon


    Description

    Helping couples heal from an infidelity is complex and challenging for therapist.

    For the offended the infidelity is traumatic with deep emotional wounds.  For the offender there seems to be no end to their guilt and shame.  This intervention addresses both experiences leading the way for forgiveness, reconciliation and healing.

         Couples who have experienced an infidelity come to counseling in considerable brokenness and assisting them in the healing process is complex and challenging.  For the offended the infidelity is traumatic with deep visceral and emotional wounds.  For the offender who is remorseful there seems to be no remedy or end to their guilt and shame.  This innovative intervention addresses both experiences leading the way for forgiveness, reconciliation and healing.

         Forgiveness is most often viewed as a spiritual or justice-oriented practice that places the responsibility of the forgiveness on the victim.  However, forgiveness, as a financial term, means to be released from debt.  As a financial construct it would include itemizing the debt and determining how recompense is to be structured or a declaration of bankruptcy leading to the debt being forgiven with no further payment required.  


    Learning Objectives

    1.Attendees will be able to utilize this method of helping couples recover from infidelity.

    2.Attendees will be able to engage in both cognitive and experiential interventions leading to couple healing.

    3.Attendees will be able to provide couples with an experience of deep forgiveness and reconnection.
