Course Overview

This course, Understanding and Overcoming Co-Dependency, is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of co-dependency—a pattern of behavior where individuals become reliant on others’ needs and approval to the detriment of their own health and autonomy.

The course delves into the characteristics, and consequences of co-dependent behavior, particularly as it manifests within dysfunctional family dynamics. Participants will gain insights into recognizing co-dependent traits in themselves and others, and learn strategies to foster healthier, more autonomous relationships.

Learning Objectives:

Define Co-Dependency: Participants will learn to define co-dependency and understand its psychological underpinnings, including the compulsive behaviors and maladaptive patterns commonly exhibited in co-dependent individuals.

Analyze Dysfunctional Family Dynamics: Explore how ongoing conflicts and denial within families contribute to the development of co-dependency, focusing on the roles and survival behaviors that family members adopt to cope with emotional stress.

Identify Co-Dependency Traits and Consequences: Gain the ability to identify specific behaviors and characteristics of co-dependent individuals, and understand the physical and emotional consequences of untreated co-dependency.

Develop Strategies for Overcoming Co-Dependency: Participants will explore various treatment resources and self-help strategies for addressing and overcoming co-dependency, including setting healthy boundaries and engaging in self-care practices.

Promote Awareness and Recovery: Encourage the development of healthier relationship patterns and enhanced self-awareness through the application of therapeutic and supportive interventions aimed at recovery from co-dependency.

By the end of this course, participants will have a clearer understanding of co-dependency, enhanced by practical knowledge and tools to break the cycle of co-dependent behavior and foster personal growth and healthier interpersonal relationships.
