Many people read codependent no more by melodie beattie
and someone on here said codependency for dummies by
darlene lancer is very good plus Darlene's other books.
I like lisa a romano, she has a lot on free youtube videos,
Ross Rosenberg has some free ones too. They both write
books and both have some media for sale. Dr henry cloud
has two real good books boundaries and safe people. I also
like robert burney's work.
I like john bradshaw and pia mellody work, they both do shame
work, both were at the meadows in Arizona. Pia's books they use
as training/modeling in some rehabs centers world wide. John was
a pioneer on the dysfunctional family system and did tv shows on
the family on PBS. Johns work gives you some empathy for the
sweet innocent infant and child you once were.
I know what codependency is...I've read enough books, articles, research, and stopped an analyzed my personal relationships. I've laid out boundaries, had difficult conversations with people and myself, and things go well...and my old habits creep up again. I am a rescuer/fixer. Even perusing the other groups on this website...I wanted to leap in and tell this woman to leave her abusive...
Just putting the subject out there
