Key Skills for Coping with a High-Conflict Co-Parent with Bill Eddy

Do you co-parent with a high-conflict person?  Does any of this sound familiar? All or nothing thinking?  Unmanaged emotions? Extreme behaviors? Blaming others?   You are not alone and there are skills you can learn to help you cope with high-conflict co-parents.

Join PDAN for an exclusive, interactive webinar with Bill Eddy, an international expert on managing disputes involving high conflict personalities and individuals with personality disorders.

One of the coping skills Eddy will focus on is
BIFF: Brief | Informative | Friendly | Firm.
A BIFF response helps us communicate in this age of rapid change and instant communication, and in a society with a growing Culture of Blame and Disrespect. Managing your responses to high-conflict emails, texts, letters, and social media meltdowns is imperative.

A BIFF response can be applied in any communication anywhere – on the Internet, in a letter or in person. It can help you get along with difficult family members, especially in your co-parenting relationship. It can also be applied to friends, neighbors and others anywhere in your life. BIFF was designed to protect you and your reputation by responding quickly and civilly to people who treat you rudely – while being reasonable in return.

Eddy will also speak on “New Ways for Families” http://www.newways4families.com and a 3-step method of “Making Proposals” to constructively address parenting issues.

  • Entitled—makes the rules; breaks the rules
  • Demeaning—puts you down, bullyish
  • Demanding—of whatever he or she wants
  • Distrustful—suspicious of your motives when you’re being nice to him or her
  • Perfectionistic—rigidly high standards, his or her way or no way
  • Snobbish—believes he or she is superior to you and others
  • Approval Seeking—craves constant praise and recognition
  • Unempathetic—uninterested in understanding your inner experience
  • Unremorseful—cannot offer a genuine apology
  • Compulsive—gets overly consumed with details
  • Addictive—cannot let go of bad habits

Whether you are staying or leaving… you will learn effective strategies for:

Susan Rabin, author of “The Summer Train”

 Topic: Susan Rabin, author of “How to Attract Anyone Anytime Any Place”, has turned her talent to fiction in a book called “The Summer Train. A Woman’s Journey from Desperation to Celebration.

Please register in advance; it’s Free! http://www.anymeeting.com/PIID=EA56DB87834D3B

Plot of the The Summer Train:
Sandra, the main character in Susan’s novel suffers from Bipolar illness. We follow her journey from a New York Psychiatric hospital to her seemingly normal life in an upscale Hamptons community.

“The Summer Train” is fiction but the struggle with Bipolar illness is real, and we gain insight into Sandra’s symptoms and struggle with a mental illness that impacts all facets of her life and all who suffer.

Bipolar illness has no cure, but it can be managed. Susan will discuss the stigma, shame, how she coped, always hiding her sickness from the world until she couldn’t anymore. “We have come a long way from the early days of mental illness and when Bipolar disorder was named manic-depression.”

We have new therapies, medications, and hopefully new attitudes. The media is saturated with Bipolar. Susan calls it the disease du jour. But isn’t that good? People are paying attention. Brain science is at its infancy. We are at a turning point in mental health. With the right psychiatrist and proper medication we can all face the challenges. Bipolar disorder has come out of hiding and offers hope.

Susan will also discuss how for some people, especially women, flirting can be a coping strategy and sexual relationships become a way to mask the illness.

Join our lively discussion! Don’t miss this call which is assured to hit some good spots in your life. It may help you come to terms with your own issues in ways that improve the rest of your life. It is not too late to be honest with the people you love… Here is a recent interview of Susan Rabin:
