Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0062505890, Paperback)

Pia Mellody creates a framework for identifying codependent thinking, emotions and behaviour and provides an effective approach to recovery. Mellody sets forth five primary adult symptoms of this crippling condition, then traces their origin to emotional, spiritual, intellectual, physical and sexual abuses that occur in childhood. Central to Mellody's approach is the concept that the codependent adult's injured inner child needs healing. Recovery from codependence, therefore, involves clearing up the toxic emotions left over from these painful childhood experiences.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:29:54 -0400)

Discusses the symptoms of codependence, explains how child abuse and dysfunctional family life can cause the condition, and suggests a path toward recovery.
