Co-Dependence in Interpersonal Relationships

  • Washtenaw Community College-Morris Lawrence Bldg., ML 128 4800 East Huron River Drive Ann Arbor, MI, 48105 United States (map)

Course Description:

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a global public health issue. The role of codependence as an integral part of this dynamic has been peripherally understood and inadequately addressed in most therapeutic situations. IPV victims regardless of sex, sexual preference or race have a significant need for clinical intervention that identifies and addresses codependence issues.  This seminar will help clinicians teach their clients to recognize the eight early signs of a potentially violent relationship, the dynamics of codependence and IPV, and distinguish phases of violence through examining the power and control cycle. The workshop will include a discussion of the codependent thinking and behavior that perpetuate IPV.
