Utilizing a Polygraph in Treatment for Infidelity & Sex Addiction | 3 CEUs
June 16 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm$85
When a couple has experienced deep betrayal, the trust rebuilding process can be a long and grueling experience. The betrayed spouse is in a tough position of determining if trusting their spouse again is the right thing to do. They often ask, “How do I know they are being honest about their deception? Is there more I don’t know that they are not telling me?” If the betrayed partner is heavily burdened by this worry, then they tend to find the process of letting down their walls and being vulnerable with their spouses very difficult and daunting.
In this workshop, learn how the strategic use of a polygraph exam can not only help a couple with healing after the experience of a deep betrayal, but also how it can help give a couple momentum in restructuring their new relationship.
CEUs: 3 CEUs will be applied for the following licensures: LMFT, LPC, LADC, LCSW, & Licensed Psychologist
