- We can order this
Clinical Treatment Directions for Infidelity considers the psychotherapeutic treatment of infidelity from a fresh perspective. Psychotherapy (both couples and individual) for infidelity is notoriously challenging, and clinicians tend to disagree on case conceptualizations and treatment objectives. This book approaches infidelity from a client-centered, phenomenological perspective, informed by qualitative research and social context. Essential for clinicians who work with cases of infidelity, it provides a framework and set of tools with which to approach these cases from a non-judgmental stance that helps clients glean meaning from these experiences and make conscious personal choices about how to move forward.

"This book is a brilliant reflection on the lived-experience of infidelity. In this book, you will find a well-documented and developed ethic that does not fall in the usual and useless dichotomy of good and bad and is free from any moralistic judgment. I strongly recommend this book to all the people who want to undertake an honest analysis on the topic."
-Susi Ferrarello, PhD, lecturer at California State University, USA, and philosophical counselor
"Well-written, engaging, and grounded in practical experience, this text presents readers with a comprehensive understanding of the lived experience of those who have gone through infidelity. It goes beyond a prescription of what to do in treatment, but rather guides a clinician through their own treatment strategies by providing thorough context, perspective, and information. This is a must-have for anyone working with infidelity."
-Katherine M. Hertlein, PhD, LMFT, professor and program director of the Couple and Family Therapy Program at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, USA
