Hi, this is couple and family therapist Abe Kass, MA RSW RMFT,
Infidelity need not spell the end of your marriage or committed relationship.
In my professional work as a couple and family therapist, I have worked with many couples who have had their lives shattered by infidelity, the natural trust, love, and innocence destroyed. Fortunately, with the right effort, couples often successfully repair the damage to their relationship, and perhaps you can as well.
To help you along, I have developed a 7-Step Recovery Map to support you in this journey. This map is the primary subject in my groundbreaking book, Surviving Infidelity: A Couple’s Journey using the 7-Step Recovery Map.
The 7-Step Recovery Map:
Step One: Cease all contact with the outside person
Step Two: Prove that the affair has ended
Step Three: The partner who strayed demonstrates that he or she is remorseful for having cheated
Step Four: The partner who strayed accepts 100% responsibility for cheating
Step Five: Having open and candid conversations
Step Six: Maintaining normalcy while working on recovering from infidelity
Step Seven: Dealing with relationship issues that preceded the cheating
Completing the 7 Steps as instructed in Surviving Infidelity: Restoring Trust, Finding Forgiveness, and Living Happily Together will significantly increase the likelihood that the two of you can rekindle your relationship love and trust — even if there were problems in your relationship at the time the cheating occurred.
This book is easy to read, without fluff or psychobabble, and has no unnecessary words.
Surviving Infidelity: Restoring Trust, Finding Forgiveness, and Living Happily Together explains how to use the 7-Step Recovery Map to move past the betrayal of cheating. This book will guide you in the practical steps needed to make amends, restore trust, find forgiveness, and live together happily for the rest of your lives.
