6:00 AM - 7:30 AM: Sexual Health Awareness Session 2
Love Hurts - Forgiveness After Betrayal
Ouch! Forgiveness??
No-one ever told you that love could hurt?! Or maybe they did, but you didn't think it would be THIS bad!! Almost all adult relationships require a level of grace and forgiveness; but betrayal recovery demands something uniquely difficult when it comes to "the F word", whether the relationship survives or not.
In this 90 minute presentation, we will tackle the ever challenging topic of forgiveness for those seeking healing after sexual betrayal. We will take a look at the research available on the topic and relate it to the betrayal recovery experience, exploring some of the challenges and offering new ways to think and talk about this topic with your clients.
Developed with the primary focus on addressing forgiveness in response to sexual betrayal, Cat's presentation, and the research materials, will also be helpful for those working with survivors of sexual trauma in various forms (abuse, assault, violation, etc).
Learning Objective #1: Participants will be able to describe different definitions of forgiveness and how they may differ for clients
Learning Objective #2: Participants will be able to describe the identified barriers to forgiveness and how they apply to betrayed partners
Learning Objective #3: Participants will be able to describe some useful interventions for working with individuals and couples towards forgiveness
