Suppose you’re a therapist and a new client walks into your office. This person appears confused, full of self-doubt and self-blame. What might you think might be causing your client’s problems?
- Low self-esteem
- An exploitative relationship
If you’re like most therapists, you probably wouldn’t even think of option 3 — an exploitative relationship. But Mary Ann Glynn, LCSW, CHT, explains that confusion, self-doubt and self-blame are almost universally experienced by people who are being exploited and manipulated by their intimate partners.
You probably weren’t taught this in your training. Here’s your chance to learn about it.
Lovefraud Continuing Education proudly presents “Love and Exploitation,” Mary Ann’s terrific two-part webinar on how exploitative relationships affect partners and what you can do to help them. Psychologists and social workers can earn four continuing education credits.

Also, if your licensing board limits the number of self-study credits you can earn, this program usually qualifies as in-person training.
Mary Ann teaches you to:
- Recognize when a client is in an exploitative relationship
- Recognize and diagnostically categorize the exploiter
- Understand exploiters’ predictable pattern of behaviors in phases of the relationship
- Understand the implications for intimate relating
