Facing Codependence

The author creates a framework for identifying codependent thinking, emotions and behaviors, providing an effective approach to recovery. Mellody talks about five primary adult symptoms, which she traces to emotional, spiritual, intellectual, physical and sexual abuses from childhood. Central to the author's approach is the idea that the codependent adult's injured "inner child" needs healing, which happens by clearing up the toxic emotions left over from these painful childhood experiences.
