1.   Identify at least three ways that couples are impacted by a partner’s problematic sexual behaviors and reasons that the partner not engaging in those behaviors would choose to stay in the relationship.
2.   Evaluate the benefits and limitations of the couple’s therapist functioning as a central role on the treatment team.
3.   Identify interventions that facilitate safety, empathy building, and reconnection.

1.   Recognize the ways couples are impacted by coming out crises that are reminiscent of post-affair couples, and be able to identify at least two possible pitfalls in which therapists can be detrimental or helpful in helping married couples with conflicts over mixed orientation.
