About This Workshop:
Freedom from Codependence is an active, experiential workshop that helps participants understand the relationship between childhood experience and adult behavior and the impact on adult relationships. Workshop leaders Janet Fluker, LPC and Amanda Jones, LPC teach the skills necessary to relate to loved ones in healthy ways. Topics include:

The Nature of the Child: Identify the core issues that result from unmet childhood needs and link core issues to adult behavior.

Self-esteem: Understand inherent worth and the danger of basing worth on external factors which leads to shame or grandiosity.

Reality: Define reality and how childhood experiences interfere with knowing our own.

Boundaries: Understand the origin of unhealthy boundaries and how they undermine our relationships, as well as learn about healthy boundaries (i.e., how to develop them and how they protect our reality and self-esteem).
