Workshop Description:

This workshop will present a new way to handle narcissism and emotional abuse in couples therapy. Some narcissists are charming, successful individuals. But in relationships, many are unpleasant partners. Their low empathy and sense of entitlement can be emotionally abusive. Narcissists can be hard for therapists too. They respond well to support and validation but react poorly to challenge and confrontation.
Dr. Woodsfellow has created a strategy to get emotional abuse to end quickly by: (1) empowering the emotionally abused partner, and (2) joining with the narcissist through the truth. This workshop will show you how this is done. It isn’t easy; it takes learning; it takes practice. You may have to step out of your comfort zone. But it’s absolutely worth it. Because it can bring a hopeless couple back to healing, growth, happiness, and love.
