After an affair, most couples struggle with issues around rebuilding trust, earning forgiveness, and moving toward a shared future. As a therapist, it’s easy to feel ineffective or lost in the treatment. Common dilemmas in affair recovery often surface around secret keeping, both in the therapy as well as in the primary relationship. Forgiveness can be a stuck place as well. In this class we’ll learn how to help couples work through these major stumbling blocks. This two-part class will address questions such as:
After an affair:
- is it best to work with partners individually or as a couple?
- how are secrets managed in couples therapy?
- what are the advantages and disadvantages of revealing an affair?
- how can partners constructively talk about the details of the affair?
- what does it mean to forgive?
- is forgiveness necessary?
- can trust be rebuilt (in cyberspace and in the flesh)?
- how do couples work towards forgiveness?
This two-part workshop will provide a radical model of treatment for affair recovery and provide concrete exercises for guiding couples through the healing process.
Teleclasses are easy to join Live or to listen to Anytime - MP3s and exercises for couples included FREE. Call from anywhere in the world. Call-in numbers are provided on registration. Registrants immediately receive recordings of all sessions, even if they cannot attend in person.

The New Monogamy: Redefining Your Relationship After Infidelity
“The New Monogamy takes an honest look at infidelity
and illustrates a clear path towards healing after an affair.”
Everyone has their own concept of what “monogamy” means-and most people assume their partners and spouses are on the same page. Couples may assume that they are monogamous, but never discuss exactly what the monogamy agreement means to them. What happens when this implicit agreement is broken? After infidelity, relationships can become strained as both partners lose trust and faith in each other. The New Monogamy offers a way out of these difficulties for couples struggling to stay together after infidelity. Couples make these implicit assumptions and agreements explicit so that each partner knows exactly what is expected of them in the future and what they can expect from their partner.
Author Tammy Nelson helps couples regain trust, romance, and intimacy after infidelity by redefining the monogamy contract. The new monogamy contract is an explicit relationship agreement created after the affair that allows each partner to openly, honestly, and safely share their desires, expectations, and limitations. This agreement does not create an open marriage, but rather, an open conversation wherein each partner can have a say in setting the ground rules for their relationship. The book first helps couples rebuild trust after the affair, then engages in a series of Imago dialogues based on questions about what each partner really wants in the relationship, not what you think you should want or what a partner wants you to want.
The New Monogamy includes questionnaires, checklists, and candid questions for partners to ask that help welcome complete honesty and trust back into the relationship. Then, the book helps couples make an erotic recovery from infidelity by addressing erotic problems that may surface and offers advice for helping couples return to desiring and trusting one another. After an affair, it’s impossible to go back to the way the relationship was before, but this book offers the chance for a new beginning.

What To Do When One of You Cheats
A two-part teleseminar by Dr. Tammy Nelson
12pm U.S. Eastern time
Tuesdays, June 18 and 25, 2013
This two hour teleclass with an expert in infidelity recovery will address some of the most important issues that affect anyone struggling after an affair. Whether you are still in a relationship or struggling on your own, whether you have been cheated on or you are the one who had the affair, this course can help you to understand why it happened and what you can do now. This course will show several concrete interventions for anyone recovering from an affair to help move into a new vision of monogamy.
There are many ways to create monogamy in a committed relationship after infidelity, and there are significant differences in the ways that men and women can create the future after an affair. Part two of this course will help participants define the terms of their erotic monogamy and focus on issues around trust, forgiveness, erotic recovery and how to create a long term vision of recovery.
Therapists and other professionals will learn direct interventions for couples and individuals directly applicable in all three phases of affair recovery, post infidelity. Professional participants will also learn how men and women’s treatment interventions differ and how trust and differentiating new monogamy agreements can create a vision of long term commitment and recovery.
Week One: What To Do When One of You Cheats
Do you stay up nights wondering “Why did they do it?” Or, maybe you know why it happened, but you are wondering “Can I make it work?” Maybe all of your well meaning friends and family are telling you to leave, but you’re confused.
Can you recover from infidelity? Good question. Now there is a place to go for answers. Dr. Tammy Nelson is an internationally recognized speaker and leader in the field of human relationships, sexuality and monogamy. And the author of The New Monogamy; Redefining Your Relationship After Infidelity.
This two hour teleclass with an expert in infidelity recovery will address some of the most important issues that affect anyone struggling after an affair. Whether you are still in a relationship or struggling on your own, whether you have been cheated on or you are the one who had the affair, this course can help you to understand why it happened and what you can do now.
Anyone who has gone through the trauma of an affair has questions: How do you trust again once your partner has cheated? Should I forgive them? Can we really make it work? Should I stay or go? Why did this happen?
What if you’re the one who cheated, how do you end the outside affair? How do you know if you are ready to make a re-commitment to your spouse or current partner? How can you help your partner learn to trust you again? Should you make your email and phone messages transparent? Can you talk about the affair once it’s over?
And the big question; What about sex? How do you ever recover sexually? Will you ever feel safe again? Do you need to trust each other to have sex? How do you create a new monogamy agreement going forward? Can you create a new vision of a relationship for the future?
All of these questions and more will be addressed in this teleseminar. Therapists and other professionals will learn direct interventions for couples and individuals directly applicable in all three phases of affair recovery, post infidelity.
Week Two: Women and Men Who Cheat and Why They Do It
Men and women cheat at about the same rate. Surprised? This class will explore why women cheat and what they need to recover from affairs.
Do women cheat for emotional reasons or is that a myth?
Do men cheat just for sex or are they looking for connection in their infidelity?
What are the unique reasons that men cheat, why is it different than women? Is there such a thing as a mid-life crisis affair? Why do more men seek out sex workers?
Is female infidelity caused by low self esteem? Why do they have difficulty hiding their affairs?
Did you know that both of you must learn to change lifelong patterns and overcome the temptation, perpetually, to be in a cheating relationship? And for some men and women, cheating can even be hereditary.
This course will show several concrete interventions for anyone recovering from an affair to help move into a new vision of monogamy.
There are many ways to create monogamy in a committed relationship after infidelity, and there are significant differences in the ways that men and women can create the future after an affair. This course will help participants define the terms of their erotic monogamy and focus on issues around trust, forgiveness, erotic recovery and how to create a long term vision of recovery.
Therapists and other professionals will learn how men and women’s treatment interventions differ and how trust and differentiating new monogamy agreements can create a vision of long term commitment and recovery.

Some questions that women ask that are typically covered include:
What if sex hurts? What if it’s boring? What if I can’t orgasm? What if I don’t feel safe? Do I really have a G-spot? What if I want to be more submissive (or dominant) in bed? How do I seduce a new partner, or a long term one? How do I move into a new level of Fifty Shades with my partner? And what is that squirting thing, is that real?

Week 2: Women’s Sexual Questions and Confessions, Part Two
Week Two will continue with women’s sexual questions and their answers. We will delve deeper into some real confessions about what women are most afraid of. What if my partner is no longer attracted to me? What if I don’t feel desire for my partner? What if I am too tired for sex? If we never have time for sex, how do I share my fantasies? How do I know my fantasies are normal? Are my genitals normal or should I get plastic surgery to correct them cosmetically?
Most women want to know if they are “normal.” Join the conversation and add your confessions to our course. You may find that your fears are the same as many other women’s deepest concerns.
