He’s in my head. She sucks all the air out of the room. I’m so tired of the drama. These are common ways of expressing the all-consuming intrusiveness of being emotionally manipulated. The manipulators might be relationship partners, neighbors, co-workers, family members, or “friends” and they occupy psychological space so pervasively that many clients present with complaints of confusion, exhaustion, and the struggle to even know what’s real.

In his original seminar on manipulation, Dr. Godwin discussed the dramas staged by manipulators and how therapists help clients with drama non-participation. In this follow-up seminar, the focus shifts to the psychological effects of manipulation and how therapists can help clients recover from this deeply damaging emotional abuse. Discover how manipulators succeed at getting inside people’s heads, how they wreak havoc in all aspects of a person’s life, the best treatment interventions to assist your clients in their recovery, and strategies to avoid being manipulated. You’ll walk away with practical tools to help clients overcome the negative psychological impact of manipulation.

  • Identify how manipulators gain access to the intrapsychic space of individuals

  • Describe the negative psychological impact of manipulation

  • Explain ways to help clients recover and manage the exhausting effects of manipulation 

  • Apply strategies to incorporate in treatment planning
