Alan Godwin

Doctor of Psychology Alan Godwin, who is certified in alternative dispute resolution and a 25-year veteran as a private practice licensed psychologist, will lead a seminar, Behind the Mask of Manipulation, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., September 19, at the Eyes Wide Open Center, in Bonita Springs.

The seminar follows a successful class Godwin hosted in February and will go into more depth to provide effective strategies that can be used immediately for recognizing and countering manipulation while setting healthy relational boundaries. Presenting case studies, stories, illustrations and analogies that combine decades of clinical practice and the latest behavioral research, Godwin will explore drama-avoidance techniques, including understanding the manipulation process and effectively countering manipulation, and strategies for minimizing reactions.

The author of How to Solve Your People Problems: Dealing with Your Difficult Relationships, Godwin serves on the adjunct faculty of the Graduate Counseling Department of Trevecca University, in Nashville, Tennessee, and speaks frequently for Cross Country Education, training mental health professionals in conflict resolution, the therapeutic process and dealing with manipulators.

Cost: $125. With continuing education units offered, this event is open to mental health professionals and the public. Location: 9200 Bonita Beach Rd., Ste. 204. For more information, call 239-948-9444 or visit and
