Lovefraud Continuing Education

Yes it looks silly, but scientific research shows EFT Tapping relieves anxiety, depression and PTSD

After the sociopath, how to feel better quickly — that was the subject line of an email that I recently sent out about Lovefraud’s new webinar on Emotional Freedom Techniques, or “Tapping.”

“This is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen,” responded one of our readers.

I agree — tapping does look ridiculous. My email included the above video of the instructor, Stacey Vornbrock, and me tapping on our faces with our fingertips. But guess what — EFT Tapping works, as numerous scientific studies have found.


How to spot an abusive relationship before it gets bad

Are there warning signs that a romantic relationship will turn abusive? Emphatically YES!! Lovefraud has been saying this for years, and Dr. Dina McMillan, a social psychologist, agrees.

A Lovefraud reader sent me the above video of a TEDx Canberra presentation by Dr. McMillan. She says that about one in three teenage girls and women endure physical or sexual abuse from a romantic partner at least once in their lives. That adds up to 1.16 billion people. And it doesn’t count those who suffer emotional and psychological abuse, but no physical abuse.


How many stars will you give our Lovefraud webinars?

I am so proud of all our Lovefraud webinars. All of the instructors have done a great job. We offer a wide range of information and advice to help you understand, cope with and recover from your experience with a sociopath. And our webinars for mental health professionals offer continuing education credits.

If you’ve ever taken any of our courses, they are still available to you. To watch them again, just log in!

A few months ago, we switched the delivery platform for the courses. In the process, we lost all of our customer ratings. So if you participated in any of our webinars previously, I’d love your feedback. You can rate the courses from one to five stars, and you can also leave a comment.

How to clear the emotional pain of your experience with a sociopath

I am so excited. Now, Lovefraud offers you a way to relieve all the painful emotions that result from tangling with a sociopath — betrayal, despair, anger, guilt, shame, grief, disappointment, depression, even PTSD.

Yes, I said even PTSD. In fact, this technique is being used to help combat veterans suffering from PTSD. It can help you.

For years, I have been recommending that Lovefraud readers check out EFT Tapping (Emotional Freedom Techniques). Now, Lovefraud offers you a webinar on tapping that is specifically designed to teach you how to recover from a sociopath.

Especially for young people.


What you need to know to get a restraining order against a sociopath

Sometimes sociopaths will not leave you alone. The involvement is over and you want to move on, but the sociopath is stalking you. Or, you can’t totally escape the person — perhaps you have children together — and the sociopath uses every communication and exchange as an opportunity to harass you.


Is a tumultuous relationship love or exploitation?

Lovefraud Continuing Education Webinars:

Love and Exploitation:

Part 1: Recognizing the exploitative relationship and its impact on the intimate partner — available on demand at Lovefraud CE.

Part 2: Overview of therapeutic strategies for partners in relationships with exploiters — Live online webinar on Monday, July 24, 12-2 ET.

When someone is involved in an abusive relationship, the most prominent warning sign is likely to be confusion, explains Mary Ann Glynn, LCSW, CHT. People who are involved with abusers can’t figure out what is going on — and sometimes counselors misinterpret their clients’ confusion.

Obtaining Injunctions Against a Sociopath
Presented by Megan M. Lyons, Esq.
Tuesday, Aug. 1 • 8 – 9 pm ET • $25

The sociopath won’t leave you alone. He or she is harassing you, stalking you, perhaps threatening you. You want a court order to make the abuse stop.

How do you get it? But even more importantly, should you get it?

These are the issues that attorney Megan M. Lyons will address in her new Lovefraud CE webinar, Obtaining Injunctions Against a Sociopath. If you’re thinking about pursuing a restraining order, you need this information.

If your client doubts herself, is it low self-esteem? Or an exploitative relationship?

 

Mary Ann Glynn, LCSW, CHT, will present the webinars, “Love and Exploitation.”

Suppose you’re a therapist and a new client walks into your office. This person appears confused, full of self-doubt and self-blame. What might you think might be causing your client’s problems?

  1. Anxiety
  2. Low self-esteem
  3. An exploitative relationship

If you’re like most therapists, you probably wouldn’t even think of option 3 — an exploitative relationship. But Mary Ann Glynn, LCSW, CHT, explains that confusion, self-doubt and self-blame are almost universally experienced by people who are being exploited and manipulated by their intimate partners.

If we want something different, we need to do something different

Amber Ault

By Amber Ault, Ph.D., MSW

I’m fond of this axiom: “If you want something different from what you’ve had, you need to do something different from what you’ve done.”

Here’s an important corollary: Doing something different will, at first, feel strange.

When we envision something different for ourselves and begin to practice creating it, it’s important to prepare to receive it. Otherwise, new possibilities will be assimilated by the powerful machinery of old patterns and we’ll continue to feel stuck. It’s not enough to want something different, or even to envision it. In order to create something different, we must release the barriers — often unconscious — that stand in its way. We need to lay in new skills, including tolerating the discomforts of receiving the goodness we desire.
