Sometimes the person we are closest to can also be the person doing us the most damage. From the outside, walking away may seem like a no-brainer, but the neurochemistry of love and attachment inside the relationship can make that option an incredibly difficult one.
What qualifies as a toxic relationship or friendship, how can we recognise it, and how can we disentangle ourselves from someone we care about who is causing us harm? What is the difference between a toxic relationship and an abusive one, and in what circumstances does the former evolve into the latter?
In the last week of INTIMACY, you are invited to the FOR PLAY gallery for a discussion about toxic relationships with Trish Murphy, an experienced psychotherapist, author and student counsellor at Trinity College. Her most recent book is called #LOVE: 21st Century Relationships.
This FOR PLAY event is suitable for visitors aged 15+
