Abusive relationships tend to follow patterns for behaviors, underlying emotional needs, and cognitive distortions related to those patterns. This brief course will review the evidence provided by research on codependency. Important topics and skills for helping clinicians and their clients identify these patterns and their underlying causes will be reviewed.

Areas of focus for the course will include using tools with clients and using talk therapy to help your clients be introspective into their own thoughts and feelings about relationships. Practice on using specifically Socratic questioning, the wheel of power and control, the four horsemen, the love languages, and the sound relationship house will be completed.

This course will complete an overview of the most common questions to use for clients to be able to help you better directly address underlying problems.
