A Recovery Handbook for “Facing Codependence”
Authors: Pia Mellody with Andrea Wells Miller
In her pioneering Facing Codependence, Pia Mellody traced the origins of codependence back to childhood and a wide range of emotional, spiritual, intellectual, physical, and sexual abuses. Now in this innovative new workbook, she presents a step-by-step journal-keeping method for moving toward recovery from codependence.
Based on such concepts as the “precious child” and the five core symptoms of codependence, along with the Twelve-Step process of recovery used by Codependents Anonymous, Breaking Free provides strategies and insights for attacking the fundamental problem in codependence – the lack of dependence on self.
In a three-part approach to recovery, Mellody:
- shows recovering codependents how to move beyond denial of their childhood history of abuse.
- offers techniques to identify concrete ways in which the symptoms of codependence operate in their lives.
- guides users through the process of identifying and recording specific instances of improvement in their lives as an aid to greater self-awareness and further recovery.
