Abstract:

Shows how children from dysfunctional families manifest co-dependent tendencies as adults, and suggests specific types of psychotherapy. Packed with practical psychology and a strong respect for the spiritual, this book shows readers how to heal co-dependence. Of all the books on the often misunderstood concept of co-dependence, this is probably the clearest, most complete and informative. Charles Whitfield is a frontline clinician, who has been assisting co-dependents in their healing for over twenty years. He has researched the literature on co-dependence, which he summarizes in this widely read book. He sees co-dependence as a way to more accurately describe the painful and confusing part of the human condition. In careful detail he describes just what co-dependence is and what it is not, how it comes about, and how to heal its painful aftereffects. At last, a concise and stimulating book with all the essential features and more about the nearly universal condition of co-dependence. Bestselling author, Dr. Charles Whitfield discusses in detail how co-dependence is a major manifestation of being an adult child of a dysfunctional family, and provides specific psychotherapeutic and recovery methods to help heal its wounds.
