Among couples that experience infidelity, those who disclose affairs in therapy may fare better than those who keep it secret. Marin, Christensen, and Atkins (2014) examined the outcomes of couples engaged in Integrative Behavioral Couple Therapy or Traditional Behavioral Couple Therapy for 5 years following participation. Divorce rates were lowest for couples that didn’t experience infidelity (23%), followed by those who revealed infidelity (43%), and those who kept infidelity a secret (80%).

Group facilitators would be wise to consider the motivations behind self-disclosure. Hsu, Paquin, and Kivlighan, Jr. (2014) found that when engagement was high in a counseling group, members were motivated to self-disclose relationally or with expectations of help. When engagement was low, members were motivated to self-disclose because they were uncomfortable with the silence.

In their study, Burt et al. (2014) examined the changes in visit content during well-child visits with the addition of anticipatory guidance and behavioral health recommendations by a behavioral health provider. The findings suggest that an integrated care model incorporating a biomedical clinician and a behavioral clinician could facilitate early identification and treatment of a range of childhood behavioral conditions.

A recent study by Maestripieri et al. (2014) examined potential ethnicity-related variation in men’s relationship status, sexual promiscuity, and testosterone levels. The researchers looked at data from two ethnically diverse subject populations. The findings suggest that to understand the association between relationship status and testosterone levels in men, ethnicity-related variation in sexual activity in single men and men in relationships must be taken into consideration.

In “Fostering New Relational Experience: Clinical Process in Couple Psychotherapy,” Marmarosh (2014) examines the clinical processes that foster a relational experience during couple psychotherapy, and in turn, promote increased intimacy between the partners. The necessary processes include empathizing with the couple and facilitating safety within the session, looking for opportunities to explore emotions, ruptures, and unconscious motivations that maintain distance in the relationship, and creating a new relational experience in the session that has the potential to produce integrative insight.

Professional psychology is experiencing changes and challenges in professional education and training. For example, the field has shifted from providing training in mental health to providing training in health service more broadly. Belar (2014) recaps the recommendations of The Blueprint for Education and Training developed by the Health Service Psychology Education Collaborative, and its implications for professional psychology.
