Compassion for Addictive Process in Duneland Beach, Indiana

From Craving to Caretaking: An IFS Lens on Compulsion        

Alcoholic, Workaholic, Newsaholic, Chocaholic....does everyone have an ‘addiction?’ In this experiential workshop we examine the polarities that are central to addictive processes, how they appear in addicts and non-addicts and offer clear treatment approaches for a range of compulsive behaviors.  Day two will focus on identifying the differences between compassion and over-caring and why that matters to the treatment. Interventions that help both therapists and partners avoid the hidden traps of perfectionism, rescuing and judgment/controlling will also be covered.

The workshop focus

  • Identifying the addictive cycle  
  • Safe interventions with destructive parts   
  • Trauma history and compulsive protectors
  • Impact of family legacy and the therapist’s story  
  • Shifting from codependent reactivity to effective compassion  
  • Mindful Movement to facilitate resourcing, grounding, and nurturing
