Product Description

In this Webinar: 

  • Challenge the critical inner voice that hurts our sense of self after a separation.
  • Understand how an illusion of connection or “fantasy bond” contributes to our breakup pain.
  • Learn how our patterns of attachment affect how we feel after we split up.
  • Embrace a growth mindset that helps us not stay mired in our pain.
  • Practice self-compassion to help us heal.
  • Create a coherent narrative in order to move forward and create healthier connections.

For someone experiencing a breakup or rejection, moving on can feel impossible. Although losing a relationship is hard for anyone, there are deeper, more complex reasons certain people become stuck in their pain and suffer more than others. A rejection can trigger a painful reminder of past hurts and launch people into a sea of self-attacks.  In addition, experiencing a break up with someone breaks a fantasy of connection that people form in order to feel safe and secure. A fracture to this security can shake up our sense of self and ignite anxiety based on our personal attachment history.

By exploring each of these concepts and forming a more coherent understanding one’s emotions around a breakup, a person can actually use the experience of a breakup or rejection as an opportunity for personal growth. Through self-exploration paired with self-compassion, a person can feel stronger in themselves and go on to enjoy healthier, more satisfying relationships.

In this 90-minute Webinar, Dr. Lisa Firestone will introduce individuals and therapists to psychological tools that can help a person on their path to heal from a breakup or rejection.
