Move into a deeper level of equipping and understanding the unique ministry of codependence with a brand new training seminar designed to orchestrate heart healing.  Whether you are a professional therapist or simply want to administer ministry in your church or local group, you will find resources to launch and prepare you to take that step.

This training will offer both the training content and interactive exercises to help reinforce what you are learning.  When you complete with this seminar, alongside the online course(s) for the respective workbook, you will gain insight into how codependence is formed, how healing happens, and what the long-term goals and challenges involve in being a part of this ministry. This training will look beyond the surface of the workshop process and dig into the bigger picture of cultural challenges, spiritual realities and soul healing as it relate to injuries of the heart. 

This is not a counselor or one on one training instruction preparation- but will aid you in developing a ministry based on The Christian Codependence Recovery Workbook.  Once you complete your online testing and approval by our Institute, you will also be added to our group leader list for a national database.

    My name is Colleen Ohlandt. I have contacted your organization in the past. I am leading a recovery group workshop on the Christian Codependence Recovery Workshop From Surviving to Significance here in Las Vegas NV. I heard you may have a Leader guidebook available in PDF. Please contact me if I can have this resource sent to me via e mail. Thank you.

  2. I am so glad about that, because I am living in Germany. So it is possible for me to train that precious work and use it here for His glory.

  3. Hi Sephanie, My son is a pastor of a small church. Before I was a Christian I attended a Coda group. There are so many that could benefit but I have been praying for a way to bring in into our church as a Christian Coda Group. I found you, have ordered your work book and have listened to some of your video’s. I would love to order your training video’s and look forward to working through your workbook before I try to bring it in to our church. Thank you for any imput you might have for me.

    1. Hi Patty! All the training videos are included on this site. If you want to get the training materials and take the test for the certifcate, you can register on this page! I am currently developing a training for family recovery coaching next year. You might be interested in that as well! Please stay connected.

  4. Ordered the leaders book last week and then registered for the upcoming certification next week. The registration said it came with a book? will one be sent to me? I am going over the material and reviewing the videos that are posted. I am loving the material and enjoying all of the new information. Looking forward to Weds. night. The time said TBD, will I receive an email regarding this training? Really looking forward to the family recovery coaching as well!. Thank you for sharing what God has imprinted on your heart..

    1. Hi Jennifer! This class is totally self paced, so we don’t actually offer the classes in live time. However, the recordings are posted, and you were supposed to get an e-mail delivered that had the materials. You didn’t get it? Can you check SPAM. I can send you a quick copy too! When I receive your test, I’ll give you the certificate. It’s always helpful to know that I’m expecting it! Looks like we’ll be doing a class in January for the coaching! I’ll keep you posted!

  5. I have purchased your book and will be purchasing the other also.
    My wife is in another program for like a YEAR and she suffers from chi dependant as do I, the church sent get to this program home of hope.
    Like I said I’m discovering I to suffer with co dependency and this is very hard the emotions of rash decisions, depression, anxiety, separation issues, and wanting to self preserve and divorce her so I don’t get hurt, but then the hold on forever. Sigh. It’s all SO hard,I honestly love my wife and only want the best for her, my fear is, if I stay strong and continue with church counciling and therapy as well as things like your books etc. Will she return to me hopefully loving me and me loving her this time from a HEALTHY POINT placing God first in our life…
    What are the chances… Will program like this promote our successful marriage? Or WILL they try to sever it because of the dependancy

    1. Hi Dale, thank you for your message. I’m sorry for all the struggles in your relationship with your wife. It is a painful. No of us can ever anticipate or know how another person might change, but we can work on ourselves and secure our own sanity and peace. No matter the dependency styles, God’s desire would always be to restore your marriage. Granted, it will take a lot of work. There is a great marriage bootcamp in California that facilitates these issues. It’s a four-day session, and it’s just fantastic. That would be something later down the line. If you are interested, please pop me an e-mail to and I can send you the information. I’m not sure where you are located. Prayers to you, hang in there and please let us know if we have resources that would be beneficial to your situation.
