Relationships impact almost every aspect of our life and our personal being. Part of creating healthy relationships involves understanding and identifying unhealthy patterns in ourselves and others. Patterns in abusive relationships and codependency go far beyond one partner simply suffering from an addiction. The focus of this workshop is to break down these identifiable patterns within the codependent relationship as well as how different elements of a relationship such as self-esteem, trust, boundaries, risk taking, and conflict resolution both impact and are impacted by negative codependent patterns. Over this 3-hour live interactive CE event, you will be introduced to how the scientific research has changed our understanding of these patterns as well as influenced best practices and the treatment models for codependency. 

Learn how to develop and use curiosity and questioning to strengthen the therapeutic alliance and invite your codependent clients to effectively communicate their underlying issues. Use this valuable information to deploy research-informed and targeted treatment models for codependency. The seminar will be presented through zoom and will include time for questions.
