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.

You probably weren’t taught this in your training. Here’s your chance to learn about it.

In July, Lovefraud Continuing Education proudly presents “Love and Exploitation,” Mary Ann’s terrific two-part webinar on how exploitative relationships affect partners and what you can do to help them. Psychologists and social workers can earn four continuing education credits.

Love and Exploitation:

Part 1: Recognizing the exploitative relationship and its impact on the intimate partner Monday, July 17, 12-2 ET. More info

Part 2: Overview of therapeutic strategies for partners in relationships with exploiters Monday, July 24, 12-2 ET. More info

A previously recorded version of this course is available online at Lovefraud Continuing Education. This live version gives you the opportunity to ask questions for immediate feedback and interact with the instructor and other learners. Also, if your licensing board limits the number of self-study credits you can earn, this program usually qualifies as in-person training.

Mary Ann teaches you to:

  • Recognize when a client is in an exploitative relationship
  • Recognize and diagnostically categorize the exploiter
  • Understand exploiters’ predictable pattern of behaviors in phases of the relationship
  • Understand the implications for intimate relating
  • Understand the impact on the partner
