If you’re involved in a toxic relationship, how do you get out? Or, if you’re a therapist treating a client who is in toxic relationship, how do you help them decide what to do? And if they decide to leave, how do you support them?
Amber Ault, Ph.D., MSW, offers practical and realistic advice in two webinars based on her book, ‘The Five Step Exit The skills you need to leave a narcissist, psychopath or other toxic partner and recover you happiness now.’
The Five Step Exit course offers you a structured model to help you decide whether to hang in or get out. And if you decide that leaving is best, this course provides step-by-step guidelines for determining the best way to do it. Each step in the model includes specific goals and practices to help you do the difficult work of leaving an exploitative, abusive or toxic relationship.
You’ll be able to establish your priorities, create a safety plan, and prepare for whatever may happen, including your ex’s attempts to reel you back in. That’s why the last stage of the model recovery is so important. You’ll learn how to reground yourself in your own life, desires and well-being.
Therapists can use the structured five-step model to guide and support partners of people with Cluster B personality patterns in moving through the process of dissolving toxic relationships and recovering their sense of mental health and stability. Continuing Education Credits are available for mental health professionals.
Participants in the live webinars will have the opportunity to ask Dr. Ault questions. Both courses will be available online after the live webinars, but questions and answers will not be available.
