how does a disclosure work?
Good question. There are some common steps to this work and we will adapt and change to your specific situation. In short, we will follow the format below.
Meet as a couple for one session with one of our highly trained counselors to understand your current needs and the work that is required
Meet as individuals with our counselors who facilitate disclosures to do the prep work. For the person who has conducted the unwanted sexual behaviors you will understand your choices, their impact, how to be honest and how to be relationally effective. For the other member of the couple we will help you with the pain and self-regulation, prepare for moving forward, and support decision making. (We organize every step of this process clearly)
Meet for the disclosure session all together. One spouse will share with the other about their sexual behaviors and we will manage this process and how to walk through it.
Meet as individuals with our counselors again to debrief and facilitate critical next steps.
If required, we can also facilitate your further couples recovery. Many couples like to do this once we have this deep relationship established.
