The Dynamics of Infidelity 

Applying Relationship Science to Psychotherapy Practice 

By Lawrence Josephs 

In this groundbreaking book, Lawrence Josephs argues for a new understanding of the psychological foundations of “cheating.” Drawing on research in social, personality, and evolutionary psychology, Josephs offers a complex but intuitive model that explains how and when intimate relationships work, and don’t work. His integrative and compassionate approach to treatment is grounded in psychodynamic principles, yet uses interventions from a variety of approaches, including mentalization based therapies, emotion focused therapy, marital communication skills training, and mindfulness/acceptance techniques.
