Title: Recovery from Infidelity: Exploring Variables Related to the Healing Process
Author: Heintzelman, Ashley, 1981-

Abstract: Clinicians and researchers report that growth and improvement is possible after infidelity takes place. However, research has not explored specific variables that should relate to improvement in the aftermath of infidelity. Results showed that differentiation of self was found to be related to forgiveness levels. High scores on the third stage of the three-stage Model of Forgiveness (Gordon & Baucom, 2003) predicted high scores on measures of personal growth and relational satisfaction. Posttraumatic growth and relationship satisfaction were also found to predict forgiveness. However, contrary to what was hypothesized, time since the infidelity took place and current levels of relational commitment were not found to be significant predictors of trauma.
