Ross Rosenberg will be presenting a 11o minute training entitled, The Human Magnet Syndrome at the ICA’s 2013 conference. He will present it on Saturday November 9th. The training is based on his book, the Human Magnet Syndrome: Why We Love People Who Hurt Us and his national seminar, Codependents and Emotional Manipulators: Understanding the Attraction. In the last two years Ross has traveled to 27 states giving his training.
About the Training (and the book)
Since the dawn of the first romantic kiss, men and women have been magnetically and irresistibly drawn into romantic relationships, not so much by what they see, feel and think, but more by an invisible and irresistible force. When individuals with healthy emotional backgrounds meet, the result is a loving, reciprocal and stable relationship. However, when Emotional Manipulators & Codependents meet, they are enveloped in a magnetic and seductive “love force,” it begins like a fairy-tale, but later unfolds into a painful “seesaw of love/pain and hope/disappointment. The soul mate of the Codependent’s dreams becomes the Emotional Manipulator of his/her nightmares.This book is about real-life relationships – common everyday relationships that many of us have experienced but wish we didn’t. In this book, I will explain the very human ache to be understood, connected and loved; the innate emotional, physical and sexual drive to find our “dream” romantic partner. This “love drive” motivates us to seek our perfect mate, who we hope will instinctively comprehend our struggles, validate our pain, affirm our dreams and, most of all, co-create an explosion of emotional and sexual excitement. We can’t help it; we are naturally designed to seek someone who will share with us our desire for everlasting love.
