When Clients Present with Emotional Incest Syndrome

In Partnership with NASW-IL

When Clients Present with Emotional Incest Syndrome
Date: Thursday, July 20th from 1:00 to 2:00 PM CST (11 AM - 12:00 PM PST)
Speaker: Kate Naomi Aldridge, MSW, LCSW (she/her)
Description: Emotional Incest Syndrome is a dysfunctional family dynamic that goes beyond a child being parentified. It is a type of emotional abuse that is often wrapped in what some assume to be close, tight-knit families. This course will help clinicians better understand what Emotional Incest Syndrome is, how to spot it in their clients, and ways to navigate the therapeutic relationship when the root of some of their clients' issues has revealed. The difficulty of this navigation is largely due to the sensitivity of challenging the client's worldview. Emotional Incest Syndrome can be looked or paraphrased as enmeshment, which seldom validates a client's experience. This course will assist clinicians in being able to guide their clients who live within this familial dynamic with compassion, empathy, and patience.
