Healing Covert Emotional Incest (CEI): Boundaries and a Strong Social Atom
CEI is an elusive form of sexual abuse that occurs in the family system without there necessarily being direct genital contact. The substitute spouse and/or caretaker role is common for survivors of CEI. In denying their own needs and striving for perfection, CEI survivors often feel separate and alone. A strong social atom is necessary to shed these extreme roles by identifying and setting appropriate boundaries. This workshop will demonstrate action structures to strengthen the survivor’s social atom and practice the role of “effective boundary setter.”
Participants will be able to:
- Identify at least two boundaries necessary for CEI survivors to set with family members.
2. Apply at last one action structure to assist professionals in their practice.
