Ready to learn how to overcome your life-long battle with codependency? In this experiential workshop based on Ross Rosenberg’s The Codependency Cure, you’ll explore why people are magnetically and irresistibly drawn together–not so much by what they see, feel, and think, but by an invisible unconscious relationship “love” force. Learn why opposite—but exquisitely compatible—codependents and narcissists are brought together into what seems like a soulmate dream that inevitably becomes a cellmate nightmare.
This is a mold-breaking workshop that represents the most modern and scientifically up-to-date thinking about codependency—which Ross has redefined and reconceptualized into “Self-Love Deficit Disorder (SLDD)™—its trauma, and core shame origins. Ross will present his breakthrough Ten-Stage Self-Love Recovery Treatment Model—a wide array of divergent and eclectic explanations, theories, and treatment techniques woven into a coherent, logical, and intuitive treatment model. Each stage represents a linear and sequential element of a treatment process (method) that permanently eradicates codependency/SLDD.
Ross’s model inform and directs an effective treatment strategy that resolves attachment trauma, core shame, and pathological loneliness—the core issues/problems of SLDD. It sequentially organizes a toolbox of treatment techniques into a compelling, unified, linear, stage-based explanation of, and blueprint for, the “cure,” or what Ross calls permanent “Self-Love Recovery.”
- The causes of SLDD—trauma, core shame, pathological loneliness, and SLDD addiction
- Ross’s Ten-Stage Self-Love Recovery Treatment Model
- How to set boundaries with narcissists while escaping from narcissistic abusive predators
- Techniques to shift from being in self-love deficit to self-love abundance.
This engaging, entertaining, and informative experience is designed to appeal and make intuitive sense to both a prospective client and the treating professional. You’ll undergo a cascade of “aha moments” which will ultimately result in a solid understanding of the Self-Love Deficit Disorder and a life-changing treatment model.
