DAY ONE: Women Who Love Dangerous Men — Sandra L. Brown, M.A.

This ground-breaking workshop will introduce innovative new perspectives on what draws women to psychopathic, narcissistic, anti-social, and borderline men and why these relationships produce such unrelenting and often unidentified trauma. Based on years of research with Purdue University and the development of the only clinical treatment model for this population, you will learn the identifiers that The Institute for Relational Harm Reduction has pioneered in this new emerging genre of counseling based on four elements in all Pathological Love Relationships.

  • Understanding Developmental Aspects of Pervasive Characterological Disorders in Abusive Relationships (Cluster B Personality Disorders/Psychopathy)
  • Dramatic and Erratic Relational Dynamics: The Pathological Love Relationship Timeline
  • The Survivor-Partner “Super Traits” of Personality
  • Extreme Traumatic Aftermath Symptoms

Faculty: Sandra L. Brown, M.A., is the author of many books on surviving abusive relationships, including Women Who Love Psychopaths, How to Spot a Dangerous Man, and Counseling Victims of Violence. She has pioneered the field of identifying profiles of women prone to attracting and tolerating narcissists and psychopaths. Her treatment program for “Healing the Aftermath of Pathological Love Relationships” is one of the first in the country to address this growing population of untreated women.

DAY TWO: Managing High-Conflict Personalities — William A. Eddy, LCSW, Esq.

People with high-conflict personalities tend to focus on one or more Targets of Blame—typically someone close to them (partner, child, neighbor, co-worker) or someone in a position of authority (boss, therapist, lawyer, police, government official), including the people most trying to help them. They attack this person verbally, physically, financially, legally or spread rumors on social media, etc. Many have one or more personality disorders or traits. Managing them as professionals on a regular basis involves understanding their personality patterns and how you can engage them most effectively. In this workshop you will learn about...

  • Diagnostic criteria of five potentially high-conflict personality disorders
  • Interpersonal conflict dynamics of each of these five personalities
  • Identify high-conflict personalities as early as possible
  • Manage individuals with a high-conflict personality
  • Presenting patterns of high-conflict behavior without using a diagnosis
  • How to avoid professional splitting in high-conflict cases
  • Key conflict resolution skills of the New Ways for Families® method
  • How to manage your own stress when working with high-conflict personalities

Faculty: William A. Eddy, LCSW, Esq., is a lawyer, therapist and mediator in San Diego and the Training Director of the High Conflict Institute. He has provided training on high-conflict personalities in over 30 states and ten countries. He is the author of over a dozen books, including: High Conflict People in Legal Disputes, 2nd Ed. and SPLITTING: Protecting Yourself While Divorcing Someone with Borderline or Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
