Based on 18 years of practice as a psychoanalytic therapist and in-depth understanding of personality disorder issues such as borderline, narcissistic, and perverse personality structures.
Listen, most of us know when someone is not good for us…but sometimes we try not to think about it.
Does your partner respect you?
Is there someone in your life who is driving you crazy?
This course will teach you tools you can use…specifically if you’re trying to co-parent with someone difficult, or more generally if the difficult person in your life is your mother-in-law, a sibling, or a parent with a personality disorder.
Being controlled, manipulated, or undermined can be so subtle that you may not even realize how much of yourself you’ve lost.
Many times we excuse and deny problems that are clearly staring us right in the face…not because we want to, because when you don’t know what to do about a situation, minimizing it can be so much easier than feeling frustrated and helpless and shutting down. Denial or dissociation help us cope, go on.
And sometimes even when your gut keeps telling you all along that something’s wrong, your partner (or whoever it is) puts on such a good façade in front of others that you wonder if you’re just imagining things…or else other people invalidate your perceptions.
You may be mentally, emotionally, physically and psychologically exhausted. Taking care of your children, the house, work, the bills…making excuses and covering up for a partner who does not carry their weight…feeling unsupported, being questioned and invalidated…having someone in your life who disrespects your boundaries…the stress piles on higher and higher until you feel like you’re going to collapse.
Or else things get better for just long enough for you to keep going on with the way things are. Even though something really does need to change.
Having someone validate, name, and explain what you’re dealing with can lift the fog of confusion and pain that is hanging over your life.
Learning tools for deescalating someone with personality disorder, helping your children talk about what they’re going through, setting clear boundaries without feeling like you’re being mean, and being able to say no even when you’re being guilted or manipulated, can make a huge difference.
There are tools that can help you. These are not magic answers and they aren’t easy to implement. But they are effective and they’re clear. You will understand what you are dealing with, where things stand, what you can and cannot change, and how to care for yourself and your children without making things worse.
Are you ready?
