Program Description

What happens when parents fail to adequately respond to their children’s emotional needs? Psychologist Jonice Webb, PhD, coined the phrase Childhood Emotional Neglect™ (CEN) after discovering how this long-overlooked experience affects millions without their knowledge.

This weekend is for mental health professionals and everyone who has ever wondered why they don’t feel happier, more connected, and more fulfilled in their lives. Together, two master therapists, Jonice Webb, PhD, and Joyce Davis, LICSW, will show you how to identify, understand, and begin to heal the effects of CEN in yourself and others.

Through lecture, group work, and questionnaires, you will:

  • Determine the type and extent of emotional neglect in your childhood
  • Realize the value and purpose of your emotions
  • Explore how to tolerate, manage, express, and share what you feel
  • Start using your emotions to make decisions, motivate, direct, and empower you.

Whether you are dealing with CEN yourself or working with people who do, this program provides the awareness and tools to heal and begin living the life you were meant to live.

  • Why Attend
    • Learn how to spot, understand, and treat CEN from the therapist who pioneered the concept.<br />

    • Because learning about, thinking about, and FEELING your feelings is the first step to understanding yourself and those around you.

    • There is no changing the past or our family and parents. There is only ever the opportunity to undo our own conditioning and find a new and better way forward.
