Sexual Addiction and Infidelity Dynamics: Effective Treatment Approaches for Couples

Presented and developed by Rob Baker, MA, LMFT, LMHC, CSAT

Learning about a partner’s sexual addiction and/or infidelities can be one of the most challenging experiences a person can face. Sexual addiction is not only proliferating at an alarming rate with the emergence of Cybersex, but also becoming more invasive into homes and families.

To address these dynamics effectively, this workshop is designed to provide:

  • An overview of the precursors, etiology and neuro-science for Sexual Addiction and Infidelity
  • Ways to detect, assess and evaluate the elements of problematic sexual patterns and/or addiction as well as corresponding codependency dynamics in the context of individual and marital therapy
  • Orientation to Relapse Prevention Models and Treatment Intervention Tools for Personal Recovery, grounded in Cognitive-Behavioral, Family Systems and Trauma Theories
  • Two-Phase Approach for Relational Reconciliation, including specific steps, formats and exercises to support restoring trust and co-creating a mutually satisfying relationship

Workshop Objectives

  • Orient the workshop participant to a model of healing, reconciliation and re-bonding for couples facing the challenge of sexual addiction and infidelity
  • Understand the etiology and dynamics of sexual addiction, co-dependency and their interaction
  • Examine assessment tools and treatment modalities for recovery from sexual addiction, infidelity and co-dependency for each partner in relationships where these dynamics are present
