Program Description

What is at the root of our most deeply ingrained self-defeating patterns?

Unresolved wounds from heartbreak, loss, and abandonment lead to "Outer Child" patterns: destructive habits like procrastination, avoidance, cluttering, inertia, and disruptive relationship tendencies. Abandonment is a primal fear that can be the underlying source of emotional distress and self-sabotage. And it can be healed.

Psychotherapist and author Susan Anderson, LCSW, brings 30 years of clinical experience to helping people reverse self-abandonment, the primary source of these and other patterns. Join Susan for a weekend immersion to learn powerful mind-body exercises that act like "physical therapy for the brain."

Susan excels at creating safe, open, life-changing processes in groups, teaching you to:

  • Overcome patterns of abandoholism (the tendency to be attracted to things and people that are unavailable)
  • Accept being loved and reduce insecurity interfering in your relationships
  • Stay goal directed: tame procrastination, avoidance, inertia, and other Outer Child patterns
  • Provide healing to the source of depression, shame, and low energy.

An experienced group therapist and workshop leader, Susan uses her extensive expertise in family therapy, bereavement, psychotherapy, and supporting people in recovery to guide you toward healing your most primal wounds.
