Infidelity and Couple Therapy Outcomes 5 Years Following Therapy
Infidelity is a common marital problem in the United States, with prevalence rates estimated between 20-40% (Atkins, Baucom, & Jacobson, 2001). Approximately 42% of all divorcees reported more than one extramarital affair during the course of their marriages (Janus & Janus, 1993). Infidelity is linked to increased marital distress, conflict and divorce (Amato & Rogers, 1997).
Paternal Post-Partum Depression
Post-partum depression has long been identified as a serious condition after the birth of a child. There has been extensive research on maternal post-partum depression, which has revealed many predictors (Beck, 2001). However, there have not been a lot of studies conducted on what causes fathers’ post-partum depression. From the little data available, it seems that maternal post-partum depression is the strongest predictor of paternal post-partum depression (Paulson & Bazemore, 2010).

Dialectical Behavior Therapy Overview
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) was originally developed by Marsha Linehan for the treatment of individuals diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). In recent years many new psychotherapies have been studied for the treatment of BPD; however, DBT has been the most studied and most widely practiced of all. According to Swenson (2000), some of the reasons for DBT’s popularity are strong empirical support for the treatment, integration of four domains (biological, environmental, spiritual, and behavioral) into a unique treatment approach that appeals to many people with different backgrounds, and the synthesis of acceptance and change strategies.
