Course Description

This course will look at codependence and its impact on different areas in life. Codependence can be defined as an attachment to people who seem to need or want emotional caretaking. 

The characteristics of codependence can include (but are not decisive nor limited to): overdoing in caretaking, feeling responsible for regulating the emotions of others, difficulty in setting boundaries, encouraging others to rely on the codependent person, feeling rejected when criticized, and experiencing guilt when not there for others.

Codependent individuals tend to be drawn into relationships that are in need of help or that require some kind of ‘saving’. The codependent person seemingly has assigned themselves the task to help others—hence the heroic element that Craig Chalquist talks about in this course.

We will look at the personal, mythic, archetypal, and family systems perspectives while exploring how the dynamic plays out in everyday situations. The course is aimed to assist you in developing satisfactory relationships, in which you meet the other in strength and as an equal.

Craig Chalquist has also taught the highly-rated course on Narcissism here on Jung Platform. Codependents often have narcissists in their lives and narcissists have codependents in their lives, as you will find out in this course.
