CODEPENDENCY, NARCISSISM ADHD, AND ADDICTION – WHAT’S THE LINK?
(95% of your clients are affected!) (14 CPD points)
“Co-dependency as a condition is often misunderstood and therefore not treated – and its crucial link with narcissism, ADHD and addiction missed by many helping professionals. As research indicates that 95% of our clients are affected, this is a detrimental loss.
However, experience shows that when the co-dependent realizes how co-dependency, narcissism, addiction and where relevant their spectrum disorder feed into each other, they then fully understand how to take their power back! Our job as helping professionals is to help them see that.
“Through my work, I have developed a helpful model that addresses these issues and it is my client’s experience (young and old) that the model works. Now, your clients can benefit too!” – Margaret Parkes
This intensive and experiential programme is based around a therapeutic model for working with co-dependent adults and young people who come from an emotionally abusive relationship and/or a neglectful family of origin. It also highlights how co-dependency can be central to many addictions. The issue of identifying ADHD is addressed and its link with Co-dependency, Addiction, and Asperger is addressed. Being goal focused, this model encourages the helping professional to be aware of their own co-dependency and narcissism, and how it might impact on their client work. It supports the professional to take an interactive role in their client’s recovery (check www.margaretparkes.ie for more information and for recent articles).
Margaret Parkes (Dip. Psych., BA, MSc.) has practiced as a psychotherapist and systemic practitioner for over 15 years. She is a qualified and experienced facilitator and has experienced significant success with this model.
