Their victims are left feeling confused, selfish for having their own needs, and convinced they must make the abuser happy with them at any cost.
In this session Dr. Lindsay Gibson, clinical psychologist and international best-selling author, will show you experiential emotional techniques your clients can use to set boundaries and free themselves from emotional tyranny.

Lindsay C. Gibson, PsyD, is the Amazon #1 Best Selling Author of Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents: How to Heal from Distant, Rejecting or Self-Involved Parents (New Harbinger, 2015.) It has sold over 100,000 copies, been translated into 14 languages, and has helped thousands of people reverse their toxic psychological legacy and reclaim their lives.
Dr. Gibson’s unique contribution to the field was to recognize that the anxiety, obsessions, and depression of her clients were often rooted in distorted beliefs and emotional coercions induced by emotionally immature parents.
A psychotherapist and psychodiagnostician for over thirty years, Dr. Gibson came to realize how prevalent emotional immaturity was in the family members of her clients. Many had parents who were functional people, not extreme on the spectrum of mental health conditions, yet the destructive phenomenon of parental emotional immaturity had devastating consequences for those who grew up in its wake.
Dr. Gibson continues to work as a clinical psychologist in private practice. Her follow-up book Recovering from Emotionally Immature Parents: Practical Tools to Establish Boundaries and Reclaim Your Emotional Autonomy was released in 2019. (New Harbinger).
