Washington Dc, Maryland (PressExposure) May 15, 2015 -- Statistics indicate that one or both spouses admit to infidelity in 41 percent of marriages. Christina Ferguson, a Certified Professional Coach who has lived through the pain of infidelity, is committed to bringing awareness to the emotional and psychological effects of this behavior on individuals, children, families, and our communities.
Following a separation, reconciliation, counseling, and an ultimate divorce, Ferguson has been using her life-changing experiences to help others who might suffer in silence as a result of infidelity.
Mission of Infidelity SPeaKS: To eradicate normalizing and promoting infidelity as an acceptable and notable behavior by bringing awareness to the emotional and psychological consequences experienced by individuals, children, families, and communities. To offer encouragement and support to those who might suffer in silence as they rebuild their lives and relationships.
A yellow ribbon cutting ceremony will be held on May 30, 2015 at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library in Washington, D.C. to launch the First Infidelity Speaks Awareness Day. Event is free and open to the public. Show support. Bring support. Be support. Find support.
A significant amount of domestic violence stems either directly or indirectly from infidelity, suspected infidelity, or accusations of infidelity.
Unresolved shame and grief of affected individuals who suffer in silence might lead to hopelessness, depression, or other mental health issues, including anxiety disorders and substance abuse.
The emotional damage is reflected in what some mental health professionals call Post-Infidelity Stress Disorder (PISD), for the stress and emotional turmoil experienced after learning of a partner's infidelity.

"What an incredible event! And long, long overdue. We've been hoping for something like this to bring national attention to the issue of infidelity, which despite its prevalence in media, movies, and television is still an issue people don't want to discuss - or speak out." ~Infidelity Counseling Network, Palo Alto, California
