Course Description

Identifying and Managing Passive Aggression

Interacting with passive-aggressive (PA) people is something many of us are all too familiar with. You may actually be passive-aggressive. As a behavior, it manifests in many different ways — some of them quite backhanded and subtle — which can make it difficult to recognize…and even more difficult to deal with. Simply put, passive-aggression is a way of expressing benign, apathetic, and indirect hostility – manifesting in destructive behavior. It can involve everything from the passive resistance of commonplace social and work-related tasks (e.g. procrastination, learned helplessness, deliberate inefficiency, and forgetfulness) through to stubbornness, resentment, and contradictory behavior (e.g. appearing to be enthusiastic about something, but purposefully acting in a way that’s unhelpful and sometimes damaging). After this psycho-educational class you will be able to understand and eventually identify passive aggressive behavior in your family members, romantic relationships and even in your workplace. Armed with a clearer understand of this very destructive behavior, you will be better equipped to manage the passive aggressive people around you.

SHERRY JERIMIE

As a Certified Psychoanalyst and Licensed Psychotherapist maintaining a private practice in New York City for almost 20 years, I can attest to the fact that there is a lack of resources specifically tailored to non-traditional clients. Clients with needs having to do with one, or all of the following: E thnicity, N ationality, R ace, I dentity, C ulture and H eritage. (ENRICH) My mission is to make it possible for anyone, anywhere, anytime, regardless of geography, to have access to my services which best suits their needs. In an effort to reach you where you are, I have made available a number of options. Though I have a deep appreciation and respect for traditional structures and methods of psychotherapy, it does not always meet the needs of today's client. The services I offer run the spectrum from online assessments if you are not quite ready to talk to someone, but want to find out more about yourself, to traditional psychotherapy, and everything in between... I have also found my "ENRICH" clients are sometimes apprehensive and uninformed about therapy...hence the following series of psycho-educational classes designed to put you at ease with issues you probably want to address but are scared to. Take the step...take a class... I am a Licensed Certified Social Worker, Psychoanalyst and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist (NY State License), in private practice in New York City. My other academic qualifications are as follows: • MSW New York University Silver School of Social Work • MS (Management) New York University, Wagner School of Public Service • Certified Psychoanalyst: Training Institute for Mental Health • Certified Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist: Training Institute for Mental Health • Post Master’s Certificate in Advanced Clinical Practice, NYU • Post Master’s Certificate in Advanced Clinical Supervision, NYU • Post Master’s Certificate in Clinical Supervision, NYU • Post Master’s Certificate in Clinical Approaches To Addictions, NYU • Post Master’s Certificate in Clinical Practice With Adolescents, NYU • Seminar, Advanced Dream Analysis: Training Institute for Mental Health
