Abstract:

Counter dependence is the little-known flip side of the common psychological pathology of co-dependency. In The Flight from Intimacy psychologists Barry and Janae Weinhold isolate this phenomenon as the major barrier in creating intimate relationships. People with counter dependent behaviours appear strong, secure, and successful on the outside, while on the inside they are weak, fearful, insecure, and needy. They function well in the world of business but are often failures at intimate relationships. Being in a relationship with this kind of person can be extremely frustrating and even dangerous. The Flight From Intimacy shows readers how to recognize and deal with these people. And for those who see themselves in the description, the book provides strategies for change. The Weinholds teach readers how to use their committed relationships to heal lingering - and damaging - childhood wounds. They also offer proven ways to use conflicts as opportunities to create trusting, truly partnered relationships.
