This is a therapeutic model for treating co-dependent adults who have come from an emotionally abusive and neglectful family of origin.
(2 Day course – 14 CPD points)
This empowering model is goal focused and encourages the therapist to take an interactive role in their client’s therapy. Teaching clients new life skills is often the biggest challenge when working with survivors of narcissistic families. This model provides the skills for the client to move forward personally and professionally and it also links how psychotherapy can be useful in the coaching and business world.
This is a two day course and will be facilitated by Margaret Parkes. Margaret (Dip. Psych., BA, MSc.) is a qualified trainer and experienced facilitator, psychotherapist, supervisor and systemic practitioner. A large part of her work in her practice is working with the narcissistic, co-dependency and addiction model. She also works with the model in organisations through her leadership programmes.
Groups on the course will be small in number and training will be facilitative and interactive in style, participants will be encouraged to draw upon personal and professional experiences throughout the two days.
