Description of Presentation
Relationships are similar to organisms in the sense that they are dynamic and influenced by the socio environmental sphere they inhabit. We live in a world that is in a constant state of flux. Every day, we experience major global events that shape our worldviews and impact our daily lives and social interactions. The impact is often reflected in the quality and quantity of our dyadic interactions with our significant others. The most recent evidence of such an impact was clearly illustrated in how the pandemic and political schism affected relationship vulnerability and increased the potential for infidelity behaviors.

This workshop was created to help clinicians understand the impact of global events on the various etiological factors of infidelity. Understanding the relationship between global events and relationship vulnerability will help clinicians broaden the scope of their clinical formulation and assessment of emotional and sexual affairs.
