Satir’s intervention of sculpting (Satir, Banmen, Guber, & Gomori, 1991) willalso be used within the group format to demonstrate current power dynamics and feelingsof roles as well as the desired feelings and roles within the couple for each member. Inorder to do this intervention in group, both members of the couple would each take turnspositioning themselves and their partners in positions that are representative of currentand desired roles within the relation while also dictating the emotional expression oneach member’s face (Gehart, 2014). During the discussion portion of each couples’demonstration of poses, therapists are encouraged to help ask questions to challengepower dynamics within the demonstration.Efficacy of therapeutic groups for couples.While there has been very littleresearch regarding what works best in groups to address infidelity, one method that hasbeen proven to be very successful with couples is to increase executive functioning andawareness about the consequences of infidelity (Pronk, Karremans, & Wigboldus, 2011)and a group setting can display the consequences of infidelity more clearly due tointerpersonal and intrapersonal learning (factors (Yalom & Leszcz, 2006). In a 16-hourgroup to address sexual dysfunction with a sample size of fourteen heterosexual couples,results showed that a group delivery of psycho-education and therapy was effective(Kleinplatz et al, 2017). Additionally, counseling groups have often been used to addressspecific issues that affect individuals, couples, or families (Jacobs, Schimmel, Masson, &Harvill, 2016), like trauma and infidelity. Groups can make therapeutic services moreaccessible, inviting, and can decrease the cost per couple (Kleinplatz eta al, 2017).Additionally, the benefits of groups can come from Yalom’s therapeutic factors whichoffer additional avenues to intrapersonal and interpersonal change: the instillation of33

One possible intervention suggested by Jacobs et al. (2016) is to utilizeRounds, which asks group participants to each respond to an idea or statement to helpdetermine their meaning or interpretation. In doing a group with couples, it isrecommended that facilitators should ensure that each member of the couple have time totalk, which usually means longer group process sessions, if possible (Jacobs et al., 2016).More research is needed to create more evidence-based practices for working withcouples recovering from infidelity.ConclusionIn conclusion, gender inequality permeates our society, our lives, our identities,our roles, and our romantic relationships. It’s sheer level of pervasiveness also makes itsomewhat invisible, even though almost all our interactions with people are seen through
