You are invited to join us at our monthly breakfast program:
Insights into Affairs and Their Impact on the Divorcing and Co-Parenting Process
Presented by Tamsen Thorpe, PhD; Sharon Ryan Montgomery, PsyD; Marcy Pasternak, PhD
Dr. Thorpe and Dr. Montgomery both practice in Morristown, NJ, and Dr. Pasternak practices in Watchung, NJ. All three specialize in matters of family law, and counseling children, couples, and families going through transitions such as divorce.
As mental health professionals we know how difficult it can be to assist individuals and families negotiating the divorce process, especially when children are involved. One of the most inflammatory factors that we encounter is when there has been infidelity. It is helpful to understand the dynamics of affairs and the negative consequences that may ensue. Providing early psychoeducation and effective interventions can be crucial to the outcome of these complex matters. Specifically shifting the self-focus that involved adults often have, onto the welfare and best interests of their children can make a critical difference.
Learning Objectives Participants will be able to:1. Identify trends and types of affairs.
2. Describe the impact of affairs on adults, and how they challenge the divorce process.
3. Detail the effects on children, and how to soften the repercussions.
This program is intended for psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, nurses, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, and graduate students. It will be presented at an intermediate level, meant for those with some prior knowledge of the subject matter. The presenters receive no commercial support and report no conflict of interest regarding this presentation.
