Crazy Love: Dealing with Your Partner's Problem Personality

July 22, 2015; 1-2pm ET
1 CE: $29 members; $49 nonmembers

Join Dr. W. Brad Johnson for a discussion of his popular book, Crazy Love: Dealing with Your Partner's Problem Personality. Why are we attracted, often repeatedly, to specific problem personalities? Is it possible to make these relationships work? In ACA's latest webinar, participants will explore the most common personality disorders; their impact on intimate relationships; and insights into setting limits, self-care, and the real consequences of choosing a life with or without a challenging partner

Counselors will learn:

  • Key DSM-5 criteria on personality disorders.
  • What clients can expect relationally if their partner has a personality disorder or traits.
  • Strategies to help your clients navigate these difficult relationships.

Dr. Johnson teaches in the counseling program of the Graduate School of Education at Johns Hopkins University, where he has been awarded the university’s Teaching Excellence Award. He is also professor at the U.S. Naval Academy and has served as a member of professional ethics committees and institution review boards. Dr. Johnson has authored more than one hundred book chapters and twelve books, including the Ethics Desk Reference for Counselors, 2nd Edition.

Questions? Contact Debbie Johnson at djohnson@counseling.org or (800) 347-6647 ext. 321.

ACA's 49th President, Dr. Judy Lewis, Passes Away

by Amber McLaughlin | Mar 21, 2014
Dr. Lewis was a vociferous advocate for social justice and worked hard to shape and protect the important role that professional counselors play in helping clients and students enjoy a more fulfilling life. Many in the field owe her a debt of gratitude for her passion, her unwavering dedication, and her life-long commitment to the counseling profession.

Dr. Lewis was a professor at Governors State University until her retirement in 2008. She was president of ACA from 2000-2001, as well as Chair of an ACA task force charged with developing the ACA Advocacy Competencies. She co-edited ACA Advocacy Competencies: A Social Justice Framework for Counselors, which was published by ACA to help counselors apply the advocacy competencies across settings and specialties.

Her other books related to counseling and advocacy include Community Counseling: A Multicultural-Social Justice Perspective, Management of Human Service Programs and Substance Abuse Counseling.

After her retirement, Dr. Lewis spent her time in volunteer work focused on community organizing and social justice.

A memorial will be held on April 11 at 10 a.m. at the First Unitarian Society of Chicago in Hyde Park.
