Codependency Turns 40! Should We Celebrate, Adapt or Simply Reconsider?
Since Codependent No More became a self-help book sensation nearly 40 years ago, we’ve seen a torrent of book titles, articles, workshops, and even whole therapy centers centered around codependence work as a therapy concept. Codependency is what we know. But codependency has never been formalized as a diagnosis in the DSM or the ICD. Not ever. In fact there has never been a formal, criteria-based addiction or mental health diagnosis for the “issue” that we call codependency. So, what does this mean to our work today? Which one of the 340+ books on this topic holds the ‘right’ method? Perhaps...Read more codependency requires a review for 2020. This thought-provoking talk by treatment specialist, author, and speaker Dr. Robert Weiss, PhD, LCSW asks attendees to question old assumptions and consider new ideas, ensuring the work we provide remains strength-based, useful and deeply compassionate.
- After attending, participants will be able to compare and contrast codependence to attachment-based treatment to consider the usefulness of each approach.
- After attending, participants will develop new skills to intervene upon the loved ones of addicts.
- After attending, participants will learn how to differentiate a trauma-based treatment model from an attachment-based model.
- After attending, participants will learn new language toward effective assessment and evaluation of this population.
