About the event

A New Model for Assessment, Treatment, and Relapse Prevention for Extra-Marital Affairs (EMA)

Description

Traditional models for understanding and treating EMA’s are simplistic and judgmental and are not supported by empirical nor clinical data. In contrast, this clinically-oriented workshop promotes understanding EMA as multi -causal, multi-dimensional with large individual, couple, cultural, and value differences. In addition to treating married and partnered couples we will explore alternative sexualities especially consensual-non-monogamy (open, swinging and polyamory) relationships. The clinical theme is helping individuals and couples make a “wise decision” which promotes satisfying  relationships and sexuality.

Speaker Bio

Barry McCarthy, Ph.D. is an emeritus professor of psychology at American University, a diplomate in clinical psychology, a diplomate in sex therapy, and a certified couple therapist. He published 121 professional articles, 33 book chapters, and 24 books. Barry has presented more than 450 professional workshops nationally and internationally. In 2016 he received the Masters and Johnson award for lifetime contributions to the sexuality field.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this presentation, the learner will be able to:

1. Describe the meaning of the EMA depending on relational, sexual, gender, and cultural factors.

2. Apply the four-session assessment protocol for a comprehensive assessment of the injured partner, involved partner, and their relationship.

3. Design a treatment plan based on individual and couple goals.

4. Create a genuine narrative about the EMA which is accepted by both partners.
