Echoism - an introduction
About this CPD event
This CPD event is an opportunity to learn about echoism and its relationship to narcissism.
Donna Christina Savery presents her research into working with the partners and children of narcissists, which she published in her ground-breaking book Echoism: the silenced response to narcissism.
Sharing her experiences of working with individuals, couples and groups, she outlines why the echoist is often unable to speak with her own-voice, why she is susceptible to staying in or having continuous relationships with narcissists and she describes how her method has helped individuals to find their own-voice. This introduction to echoism provides tips on what to look out for if an echoistic individual presents in therapy or in a group or couple, and outlines traits of echoism and ways of working with it.
