I found this to be an informative well written book. I didn't really get anything new out of it though, much a repeat of her first book...Codependency no more. Still, it was a good refresher. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

In her first book, Melody Beattie introduced the term codependency and established herself as a pioneer in self-help literature. Twenty-five years later, concepts such as self-care and setting boundaries are part of mainstream culture. This follow-up clears up misconceptions, identifies how codependent behavior has changed, and provides a new generation with a road map to wellness. Codependency, she shows, is not an illness but rather a series of behaviors that can be successfully combated. She reminds us that much of codependency is normal behavior. There are times we do too much, feel too little, or overly engage. Feeling resentment after giving is not the same as heartfelt generosity. In addition to tests allowing us to assess the level of our codependent behavior, she offers overviews of and activities pertaining to particular behaviors--caretaking, controlling, manipulation, denial, repression, etc.--enabling us to personalize our own step-by-step guide to wellness.--From publisher description.… (more)
