The Meadows trauma and addiction treatment center is sponsoring a free lecture in Dallas, Texas on Tuesday, May 15 given by Rev. Daniel Gowan, M.Div., M.A., LCDC, LPC-S, on the topic of “Pathways to Victimhood: Enmeshment and Triangulation.” It will be held at the Unity Church of Dallas Sanctuary from 7:00 to 8:30pm and no registration is required.
Lecture topics include: How much scorekeeping goes on in your relationships? Are you keenly aware of the rules with your partner and how fair things are? Do double standards frustrate you to the point of conflict? Do you find yourself managing what others think/say/do? Attendees will learn the three roles in a relationship triangle and how to gracefully step out of them to move participation in relationships to a healthier level.
“Most of us confuse love with the craving to be loved,” said Gowan. “If we rely (even unknowingly) on enmeshment to get our needs met we set ourselves - and our relationships - up for failure. Move your relationships to a model of love not enmeshment.”
