With Dr. Alan Godwin
Eyes Wide Open Center
February 19- 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Discover effective strategies that can be used immediately for recognizing and countering manipulation in any context while setting healthy relational boundaries.
From guilt trips to gaslighting, emotional manipulation takes many forms, and it’s often so covert that the manipulator’s target has difficulty articulating how and when it’s happening.
This brief seminar explores the manipulator’s motivations for relating to others through drama, offering an inside-out analysis of the manipulation process.
