Counseling Seminar: Overcoming Codependency
Blue Ridge Campus (Annex)
Ask twelve counselors what codependency is and you’ll get at least thirteen different answers. Ask someone who feels trapped in a destructive relationship pattern (whether it’s with an addict, abuser, or manipulative friend) and they’ll tell you it’s real and they need help. That is what we want to provide in the “Overcoming Codependency” seminar: a context for understanding the broken rules we often try to play by in order to appease destructive relationships. We will differentiate the implications of whether a codependent style of relating emerged from addiction, abuse, or the fear of man (being more concerned about the disapproval of people than the disapproval of God). Regardless of the source, we will look at the unhealthy patterns of relating, the impact of those unhealthy accommodations, the pattern of thinking that need to change, the lifestyle in which those new patterns of thinking would be lived out, and key factors for deciding how to implement those changes bases upon the relative safety-danger of a given relationship.
