But I Have Such A Great Catch! Treating Controlling Abusive Relationships
primary intent for this home study course is to provide quality education to foster
your professional growth. The Institute has provided quality education since 1979.
The purpose of the course is to assist you in increasing your knowledge regarding how to treat patients, clients, etc. dealing with controlling relationships. As each case study is given, if the concepts seem to be applicable to your situation, I encourage you to turn your CD player off and make a few notes regarding the application of the principle to your setting. However, these notes are for your purposes only and are not to be sent to the Institute.
At the end of each CD track, a question will be asked. The question at the end of each track corresponds with the questions in your Answer Booklet. Merely write the correct letter on the corresponding blank line in your answer booklet. Each answer is only used once. Keep in mind there is nothing tricky or hard about these questions, they are merely intended to verify the playing of this CD set.
Each of the questions that are included on this CD set, are also reprinted in your Answer Booklet. These questions are sequential and deal with the section of content that preceded it. For this reason, to facilitate the answering of each question, you might read the question from the Answer Booklet prior to listening to that CD track. By knowing what the question is ahead of time you will then know the content to listen for that contains the answer. So just a hint, after you write down the answer to a question in your Answer Booklet, read on to the next question in order to give you a heads up to listen for the content that contains the answer to the next question.
For the purpose of brevity, most generally, I will use the term therapists or mental health professional. However, dont let these terms deter you from applying the concepts to your situations. When you hear the word therapists, if your job title is social worker, psychologist, marriage and family therapist, mental health counselor, professional counselor, resident director, program assistant, etc. merely substitute the appropriate term that is the most meaningful to you. In short, dont let my use of the term therapists cognitively set you off track from hearing the content because your job title is school counselor, for example. I will also use the term client for the purposes of brevity. However, if you deal with patients, residents, students, consumers, etc., transpose client for the term that is the most meaningful to you in your work setting.
Regarding pronouns and gender brevity, I am in full agreement that women can be just as powerful, controlling, and manipulative as men in relationships. And, it goes without saying that, this dynamic can happen in same sex relationships as well.
However, for purposes of brevity in this course, I will generally refer to the controller as being a "he" or "male," and the controlled or victim of the controlling relationship as being a "she" or "female." Keep in mind that this is for brevity and not intended to be sexist. Merely transpose in your mind, as needed, he for she or Richard for Mary as your frame of reference dictates to facilitate application of the content.
On this CD set we will discuss such topics as: Disintegration of Self Image, the Instant Replay, a Cold Weather Analogy, Jekyll and Hyde Reframing, Bidermans Brainwashing, Connecting the Dots, Urban Legends, B-A-D Questions, Rationalized Responses, Four Power Imbalance Questions, Three-Tiered Affirmations, Resistance and Repositioning, the Four Rs of Regaining Control, Low Risk and High Risk Responses, and Metaphors that Work.
