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 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. He 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. The training will explore why these two personality types exist in an intense, fluid and self-correcting system that creates an enduring magnetic attraction.
This program familiarizes mental health care professionals with the destructive nature of this relationship type. Participants will learn what drives Emotional Manipulators and Codependents' relationships. Most importantly, professionals 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, attendees 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.

"A new and rapidly growing population of Internet addicts has emerged. The Internet has become the global "drug" of choice. As a result of the constant technological advancements of our computers, phones and tablet devices, the Internet has never been more enticing, alluring and compelling. Due to the proliferation of online social sites for recreation, dating and other "hook-ups," it is all too easy to log-in, tune-out and engage, while never leaving the comfort of one's own home. Apart from the seemingly harmless social Internet dating options, one can schedule a sexual affair in the amount of time it takes to pour a glass of water. The Internet has become the "portal" to a new reality - virtual reality. This training is designed to address the true costs of Internet Addiction Disorder. The training will explore the impact of the seductive and addictive nature of cyber sexual, romantic, social (i.e., Facebook) and fantasy websites. The diagnostic criteria, signs, symptoms, demographics, cause/etiology and biological/neurological aspects of IAD will also be examined. Gain a fresh and comprehensive perspective on a critical phenomenon of the 21st century."
