About this course
After a nightmare relationship, you’ve finally figured out that you were involved with a sociopath. You got that person out of your life and you want to move forward, but now you’re afraid that you’ll encounter another one.
Like many survivors, you may have realized that you were vulnerable to the sociopath because you’ve never experienced a healthy relationship. Maybe your childhood was dysfunctional. Or maybe you simply didn’t understand how healthy adults should relate to each other.
If so, this webinar is for you. Mandy Friedman, LPCC-S, CCDVC, CCTP, will tell you exactly what to look for in a partner, friend or family member. She’ll explain how mentally and emotionally healthy people behave in relationships, and just as importantly, how they do not behave.
You’ll be empowered to distinguish between who you should allow into your trusted inner circle, and who does not belong, so you can choose safe and fulfilling involvements with healthy people.
- Why many survivors do not know what a healthy relationship is
- How you can tell if someone is mentally and emotionally healthy
- What mentally and emotionally healthy people do not do
- Understanding the key elements of a healthy relationship
