This best-selling book, now in a revised edition, radically challenges the prevailing medical definition of codependency as a permanent, progressive, and incurable addiction. Rather, the authors identify it as a "developmental fragment" remaining from incomplete developmental tasks during the first year of life. The first half of the book describes the developmental causes of codependency and correlates them with problems later in life such as establishing and maintaining boundaries, clinging and dependent behaviors, people-pleasing, and difficulty in achieving success in the world. The second part of the book, focusing on healing codependency, provides compelling case histories and practical experiential activities to help readers shift consciousness and transform themselves and their primary relationships. The book concludes with a chapter describing how the authors worked through their own codependent patterns. Breaking Free of the Codependency Trap presents a groundbreaking developmental approach to a problem that the authors believe affects the majority of Americans.
