Co-Dependence - Healing the Human Conditionby Charles L Whitfield
Synopses & Reviews
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.
Shows how children from dysfunctional families manifest co-dependent tendencies as adults, and suggests specific types of psychotherapy.
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.
