Best Therapeutic Practices in Treating Adults Enmeshed with a Parent
Facilitated By: Kenneth M. Adams, Ph.D.
7 CE - Online Workshop
Family system theorists inform us that there can indeed be too much closeness in a family. Enmeshed family systems demand obligatory loyalty, leaving family members who wish to chart their own course feeling guilty and torn between their own aspirations and their family's implicit and explicit demands of them. When one of the adult children is enmeshed, specifically with a parent, additional difficulties arise in the unfolding of relational capacity and sexual development.
This workshop will draw from the phenomenological data collected since 2014 from the Overcoming Enmeshment Workshops that have helped over 300 men and women from all around the world emancipate from their families and find freedom while still loving their parents.
Upon completion of this workshop training, participants will be placed on the www.overcomingenmeshment.com referral list.
Upon completion of this workshop, attendees will be able to:
- Identify the different phases of separation, differentiation, and emancipation
- Describe how enmeshment leads to various addictions and the recovery process needed.
- Identify and assess for enmeshment in clients and apply best practices for engaging the client in breaking through denial and coming to acceptance of the problem.
Explain critical aspects of the process of emancipation and the timing of various therapeutic techniques.
Identify criteria that indicate if the parent should be involved in the therapy with the enmeshed adult and which criteria would suggest parental involvement is contraindicated.
Illustrate to clients how to build resiliency against an enmeshment relapse.
Identify the specific challenges for couples impacted by one partner’s parental enmeshment and develop a template for a couple’s alliance.
