Mary Crocker Cook, D.Min. LMFT, LAADC, CADCII

 

As a therapist, I am spending increasing amounts of time faced with the disruptive impact of Facebook and social media in my client’s life. The amount of pain when “de-friended” is enormous –feeling blocked and “shut out” when clearly others have access to someone’s page is excruciating for some of my clients. Others couples come in because the non-Facebook partner feels alone in the same room, frightened by the amount of time their spouse is engaged with new “friends.” This prompted me to discover what research has to say, and I unearthed an interesting Facebook Addiction questionnaire.

 

Learning Objectives

  1. Counselors will review research findings regarding the impact of “Facebook” on social media users.

  2. Counselors will consider whether or not “Facebook” can be an “addiction,” including reviewing a “Facebook” addiction questionnaire.

  3. Counselors will consider the neurological components of social media use

  4. Counselors will review moderate approaches to “Facebook” use.

Overview of the Cotherapy Model (Overview of Conjoint Therapy with Couples, An Approach with High Conflict Couples
5 CEH

Conjoint Therapy, sometimes called Cotherapy, can be defined as two or more therapists working collaboratively with the same couple. This model can be highly effective with high conflict couples, couples who have blown-out of traditional psychotherapy.  These challenging couples each require individual therapy in addition to couples counseling, so when I refer to Conjoint therapy, I am explicitly referring  to the following model:

Each person in the couple meets with both counselors every two weeks.

Each couple meets with an individual therapist member of the conjoint team on alternative weeks.

Some high conflict or acutely distressed couples will meet both individually and as a couple weekly.   

  

Learning Objectives:

  •  

    Counselors will review the theoretical base for the co-therapy model

    Counselors will identify and examine the potential counter-transference opportunities that present in co-therapy.

    Counselors will review the co-therapy relationship formation and become familiar with the skills co-therapy requires

Attachment Theory and Codependency
3 CEH


Mary Crocker Cook, D.Min., LMFT, CADCII

 Working definition of Codependency from Awakening Hope. A Developmental, Behavioral, Biological Approach to Codependency Treatment (2011) Mary Crocker Cook

At its heart, Codependency is a set of behaviors developed to manage the anxiety that comes when our primary attachments are formed with people who are inconsistent or unavailable in their response to us. Our anxiety-based responses to life can include over-reactivity, image management, unrealistic beliefs about our limits, and attempts to control the reality of others to the point where we lose our boundaries, self-esteem and even our own reality. Ultimately, Codependency is a chronic stress disease which can devastate our immune system and lead to systemic and even life-threatening illness.

 Counselors will review the foundations of Attachment theory as the groundwork to understand the origins of Codependency, and  will consider the link between Codependency and Attachment theory from both a theoretical or practical perspective
