Research Proposal

Primary Department

Marriage and Family Therapy

Description

This research will conduct a quantitative study to identify whether EFT (emotionally-focused therapy) or Narrative therapy (NT) is more effective in increasing marital satisfaction (MS) in couples who have experienced recurrent marital infidelity. This study foresees including 100 married couples, with 50 couples assigned to each treatment modality. Participants will engage in ten sessions with both partners present. The Marital Satisfaction Inventory, Revised (MSI-R) will be completed initially and at termination to determine statistical significance in MS post-treatment. These implications will inform whether EFT or NT is more effective in increasing MS in couples who have experienced recurrent marital infidelity.
