“Cyber Infidelity: Understanding And Management”

  • PPSC 80 5th Avenue New York, NY, 10011 United States (map)

This talk has been approved by New York State for 2 hours of Continuing Education Credit for LMSWs & LCSWs, and will be led by Marlene Wasserman, Ph.D.

Access, affordability and anonymity, known as the Triple A engine, has seduced people online. Daily interactions occur via mobile devices, allowing multiple contacts on many different platforms. Simultaneously the expansion of our notion of mono-hetero normativity has brought about shifts in our perceptions of our basic principles of commitment, sexual fidelity and monogamy.

This workshop provokes participants into considering the online worlds of their clients within the context of Contemporary Intimacies. Defining Cyber Infidelity is the beginning of very complex conversations clinicians need to have with every client. Managing discovery of CI by a partner requires an extra level of clinical skills.

Marlene Wasserman is an internationally trained, AASECT-certified Sex Therapist, Clinical Sexologist, and Couples Therapist in private practice specializing in Cyber-Infidelity, Contemporary Intimacies, Developmental Trauma Disorder, Sexual Health and Rights, and Forensic Sexology. She is the author of four books and an award-winning columnist and radio-show presenter. She is also a part-time lecturer in sexual medicine at the Medical School, University of Cape Town, South Africa and a reviewer for academic journals and international meetings. Committed to provoking people into thinking about their sexuality, contemporary intimacies and sexual and reproductive health and rights in a more informed, educated and innovative way, Marlene provides cutting-edge research to stimulate this conversation in her latest book, Cyber-Infidelity: The New Seduction.
