Lovefraud Webinar Preview: Love and Exploitation – save 20%

Therapists: Do you need continuing education credits by the end of the year? All Lovefraud webinars are 20% off until Jan. 1, 2018, and continuing education credits are available for psychologists and social workers.

Love and Exploitation, Parts 1 and 2, is an excellent overview of how to recognize and work with clients who may have disordered partners. It is presented by Mary Ann Glynn, LCSW, CHT, who has extensive experience in treating these clients — people who are experiencing natural reactions to a destructive relationship.

About this course

Your client says his or her partner “swept me off my feet” or “had so much in common with me” or “seemed too good to be true.” Yet your client is feeling confusion and self-doubt, and presents with symptoms of depression, anxiety and even PTSD. So is your client experiencing a personal crisis — or exhibiting a normal reaction to a personality disordered partner?

This webinar teaches you to spot when the real problem may not be your client, but your client’s relationship. In Part 1 you’ll learn to recognize the signs of possible antisocial, narcissistic, or other personality disorders in your client’s description of his or her partner — and how these individuals typically seduce and exploit their targets. You’ll learn that individuals with exploitative personality disorders do not have the ability to engage in normal emotional intimacy, and what that means for your client’s involvement in the relationship.

In Part 2, you’ll learn how to help the client who is, in fact, involved in an abusive relationship. This will mean guiding your client to obtain clarity about the situation, and supporting your client as he or she decides how to deal with it. This webinar provides an overview of multiple healing modalities to help your client recover emotionally and psychologically from the relationship, especially if he or she suffers from PTSD.


  • How clients who are involved in a romantic relationship with an exploiter typically present, and how they describe what they feel.
  • The DSM-5 diagnostic criteria for antisocial, borderline, histrionic and narcissistic personality disorders, and comorbid psychopathic traits.
  • Why the No Contact rule is so important, and how to implement it.
  • Healing modalities to help clients recover from the psychological effects of abuse and manipulation.
