Dr. Cole was one of the first scholars to discover how differences in people’s need for attachment can lead to an intimate betrayal. He’s currently an award-winning Associate Professor at DePaul University where he does research and teaches courses on attachment, deception, and close relationships.


Emily Duddleston

Emily received her master’s degree in relational communication at DePaul University, where she worked with Dr. Cole to take academic research on infidelity and intimate betrayals and translate it into practical advice people can use to work through transgressions and rebuild trust.
