The owned child - the borderline and symbiotic character
How to work with the borderline and symbiotic character.
“The owned child” - part of 'the wounded self' - character styles series.
A series of one day workshops with Gill Coleby.
This series of workshops looks at the different types of injury to the personality and how these injuries cause disruption to the growth of a cohesive, mature self.

About the host
This series is based on the work of Stephen Johnson, with a lot of other referenced work, as well as Gill's 20 years of clinical experience. The sessions are kept small to enable group discussions and sharing of clinical work, to demonstrate the useful tool of understanding character styles.
