NOTE: This resource was originally produced as “Overcoming Codependency.” For a variety of reasons related to ambiguity in the term codependency, this seminar is being revised and re-entitled “Navigating Destructive Relationships” and will be ready in its new form by August 2024. Until then, the original “Overcoming Codependency” videos are on this page. They will be replaced when the new curriculum is completed. Thank you for your patience.
Below is a video from the presentation of the “Overcoming Codependency” seminar For the various counseling options available from this material visit www.summitrdu.com/counseling.
