The Truth Will Set You Free: How to Structure a Formal Disclosure
Pornography use breeds secrecy and hiding, which undermines trust and safety in committed relationships. In this presentation, Geoff Steurer will present a model to structure a formal therapeutic disclosure that helps the unfaithful partner confess problematic behaviors to their betrayed partner. Geoff will present a rationale for formal disclosure and identify key factors that must be present to facilitate a successful disclosure.
