More Information

Love addicts assign too much value, time, and attention to another person while neglecting to care for or value themselves. Focus on the partner is obsessive, and fear of abandonment drives the obsession. Love addicts can be addicted to anyone: lover, spouse, friend, parent, or child. It is a painful, obsessive, and addictive process that negatively impacts not only the love addict but also the individuals with whom he or she is in relationships. In this workshop, participants work on enhancing their self-love and self-care, while instilling a tolerance for feeling.

The person who is love avoidant systematically uses relational walls during intimate contact in order to prevent feeling overwhelmed by the other person, associating “love” with duty or work. The love avoidant’s greatest fear is that of vulnerability, which is explored throughout the workshop. During this process, authenticity is encouraged, and an overdeveloped sense of responsibility is released. This workshop intervenes on the destructive cycles of both the love addict and the love avoidant, offering them intimacy with healthy boundaries.

Daily Schedule

The Love Addiction/Love Avoidance Workshop meets from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday.
