Naomi Moller

Dr. Naomi Moller has a long standing interest in relationship issues and how they are worked with in therapeutic practice. With colleague Dr. Andreas Vossler, she has examined how practitioners think about and work with infidelity; one finding of this work was that lots of therapists talked about internet infidelity. She and Andreas thus decided to start a new project focussed on internet infidelity specifically; they will be talking about the study findings so far in the Student Connections conference.
