When someone is scammed or “catfished,” they are often embarrassed and feel vulnerable and may not reach out to others for support when they need it most.

Anyone can be a victim of being scammed regardless of age, education, or socioeconomic position.  ‘

In this course, we will explore:

  • The psychology that causes people to be “catfished” and/or scammed
  • The psychology behind people who catfish or scam others
  • How to you bolster clients who are most susceptible
  • How to work with someone who has gone through this experience
