Recovery From Co-Dependency: It's Never Too Late To Reclaim Your Childhood

by Laurie Weiss, Ph.D., and Jonathan B. Weiss, Ph.D.

    This book may be used as a map for therapists and Adult Children on the road to recovery from Co-dependency. Developmental issues are addressed, patterns of substitute behavior are identified and a treatment plant to meet the needs of the Inner Child is created.
Adult Children are in the position of trying to manage their adult lives on the basis of decisions made by mistreated children. Sometimes the pain of carrying out these life- repressing decisions becomes so overwhelming that they try to self medicate it. The resulting addictive or compulsive substitute behaviors, which represent a denial of what the Inner Child really needs, typically makes the situation even more unmanageable. Even though Co-dependants are usually unaware of the source of their own dysfunctional patterns, they recognize that their lives aren't working and come for help.

     In therapy, co-dependants can gain permission, information and modeling in order to learn what is naturally learned by children who grow up in healthy families. Through this corrective parenting the inner child can be healed.  

" I consider the Weisses to be the best representatives of a handful of T.A.therapists who use a true developmental approach. I am indebted to them in many places.." John Bradshaw.
