Emotional manipulators and codependents are perpetually and inevitably drawn to each other. The attraction dynamic is so strong that both partners pursue each other despite therapeutic interventions, multiple failed relationships and painful consequences. This seminar recording investigates the relationship dynamic that irresistibly draws emotional manipulators (Borderline, Narcissistic and Antisocial Personality Disorders) and codependents together.

Using a unique, fresh and innovative approach, Mr. Rosenberg will explain the fundamentals of this attraction dynamic. He will describe the nature of these binding relationships, which are often immune to personal or professional assistance. Ross will introduce his “Continuum of Self” model, which ties together the complex web of underlying psychological forces that inescapably draws the emotional manipulators and codependent into enduring and mutually inescapable relationship. You will explore why these two personality types exist in an intense, fluid and self-correcting system that creates an enduring magnetic attraction.

You will learn what drives emotional manipulators and codependents’ relationships and you will become familiar with the destructive nature of this relationship type. Most importantly, you will learn how to help the codependent victims recognize their own propensity to be attracted to emotional manipulators while teaching them how to help minimize their victimization. With an understanding of this “magnetic” relationship force, psychotherapeutic efforts can be more focused and effective. At the end of the day, you will leave with a deeper understanding of the
emotional manipulation, codependency and the relationship dynamic between the two, as well as with methods to assist Codependents in disengaging from emotional manipulators.

OBJECTIVES

  4. Explain the working definition of the Continuum of Self model
  5. Outline how to integrate the Continuum of Self model into a therapy practice
  6. Recognize the etiology of Emotionally Manipulative-related Personality Disorders
  7. Recognize the etiology of codependency
  8. Discover effective clinical skills for codependents who want to avoid and/or detach from their emotionally manipulative partners
