Is It Love or Is It Addiction? A TA Perspective
This presentation is based on Dr. Brenda Schaeffer’s international bestseller: Is It Love or Is It Addiction? Words we associate with addiction include obsessive, excessive, destructive, habitual, and dependent. And when you think about it, some of these same words are used to talk about love, romance, and sex. Brenda will discuss what addictive love is, why people are prone to it, how it differs from healthy belonging, and how transactional analysis can be used in its treatment and why it should be.
By the end of the presentation participants will have learned:
- Definitions of love, romance, and sex addiction.
- The psychology of love addiction.
- How trauma is related to addictive love.
- The use of Transactional Analysis as a framework of understanding LA.
