9781567313291: Breaking Free of the Co-Dependency Trap

This bestselling book, now in a revised edition, radically challenges the prevailing medical definition of co-dependency as a permanent, progressive, and incurable addiction. Rather, the authors identify it as the result of developmental traumas that interfered with the infant-parent bonding relationship during the first year of life.

Drawing on decades of clinical experience, Barry and Janae Weinhold correlate the developmental causes of co-dependency with relationship problems later in life, such as establishing and maintaining boundaries, clinging and dependent behaviors, people pleasing, and difficulty achieving success in the world. Then they focus on healing co-dependency, providing compelling case histories and practical activities to help readers heal early trauma and transform themselves and their primary relationships.

Breaking Free of the Co-dependency Trap presents a groundbreaking developmental road map to guide readers away from their co-dependent behaviors and toward a life of wholeness and fulfillment.

From the Author:

Over the years we have received many "Dear Barry and Janae" letters telling us how much readers have gained by reading this book. The book offers hope to those who have been "labelled" as  co-dependents.  It shows them how to break free from the trap that the label created and helps them to restore their emotional well-being and relationships.

From the Back Cover:

This best-selling book, now in a revised edition, radically challenges the prevailing medical definition of co-dependency as a permanent, progressive, and incurable addiction. Rather, the authors identify it as the result of developmental traumas in early childhood that interfere with the infant-parent bonding relationship during the first year of life leaving people with incomplete developmental processes that have to be completed as an adult. Drawing on three decades of clinical experience, Barry and Janae Weinhold correlate the developmental causes of co-dependency with adult relationship problems. These include the following:

  • difficulty in establishing boundaries in your relationships and being invaded by the demands of others,
  • clinging and dependent behaviors,
  • excessive people-pleasing, and
  • difficulty being successful in work situations.
The book provides practical activities to help readers identify the sources of their adult co-dependent behaviors and suggests ways to change them.
