EMS Weekend

For couples.


EMS Weekend is an intensive weekend seminar that stabilizes your relationship after an affair.

The Emergency Marital Seminar (EMS) answers each partner’s questions and provides viable solutions to your crisis. You likely have experienced many of the challenges associated with working through betrayal. The EMS Weekend helps you gain perspective of where you’re at in recovery and what needs to be done.

The weekend is conducted by Rick Reynolds, LCSW, founder of Affair Recovery and creator of both EMS Online and Hope for Healing online courses. Rick has specialized in treating infidelity for over twenty years and has helped over 2,000 couples struggling with infidelity.

Below is an interview with Dr. Shawn Stoever, the Senior Director for the WinShape Foundation (a non-profit ministry of Chick-fil-a) who oversees their Marriage Retreats and Leadership programs. Dr. Stoever has spent the majority of his professional career helping develop marriage intensives and is one of the leading experts in the field. Listening to this interview will provide additional avenues for your recovery process. Shawn not only explains the benefits of an intensive and a marriage retreat, but he makes some recommendations on finding a specific program that could be helpful for you and your spouse.

EMS Weekend also includes 18 months of free access to the Recovery Library, a $540 value containing over 700 articles, videos, and audio recordings by affair recovery experts.

Married for Life Aftercare Program

After the weekend, the EMS aftercare program provides both support and guidance for at least a year after the seminar. You will continue to meet with your group weekly by phone to work at implementing new behaviors and assure that you and your spouse continue in your healing journey. The first six weeks of the aftercare program are facilitated by an Affair Recovery Group Leader.

Hurt spouses will discover:
• An understanding of what went wrong and why

• How to control intrusive thoughts

• How to talk to your partner and develop a healthy relationship

• A new sense of trust and safety

• The process and dimensions of forgiveness

• How to move on with a new sense of peace and hope

Unfaithful spouses will learn:

• Ways to successfully communicate your sincere regret

• An increased connection with your mate

• Ways to help your mate heal and feel more secure

• Ways to let go of your shame and move on

• New boundaries that help restore trust

• Ways to prevent relapse


The program is particularly helpful for couples:
  • Who are gridlocked over their need to move forward
  • Who don't want to further the damage with poor recovery techniques
  • Where the unfaithful spouse is having difficulty breaking away from the affair partner
  • Where the hurt spouse is having difficulty believing their mate
  • Where the infidelity was in the past, but the couple has never been able to properly address it to heal

I can't thank you enough for the EMS weekend. It was positive and life-changing for everyone who attended. My wife and I have an excellent chance of surviving as a couple. Please continue to do whatever you can possibly do to encourage people to attend. We had no idea whatsoever how helpful it would be.
