Pia Mellody creates a framework for identifying codependent thinking, emotions and behaviour and provides an effective approach to recovery. Mellody sets forth five primary adult symptoms of this crippling condition, then traces their origin to emotional, spiritual, intellectual, physical and sexual abuses that occur in childhood. Central to Mellody's approach is the concept that the codependent adult's injured inner child needs healing. Recovery from codependence, therefore, involves clearing up the toxic emotions left over from these painful childhood experiences.
Pleasantly surprised! Author is not writing just academically but personally

I have struggled all of my life with abuse and recovery. I was told many times I needed to read a certain codependency book. I was in therapy for years and finally read that book. I suffered a domestic violence incident right after. I didn’t pick it up again. I was told recently about this book and that I really needed to read it. I dreaded the task but need the help. I was pleasantly surprised it wasn’t your normal self help book. It’s actually written by a person who has dealt with codependence and abuse herself. It has been painfully spot on at times with my life but I think it’s wonderful this book was written based on personal experience with many others for examples who suffer and survive these issues. It really helps to explain some of the behaviors and how they sabotage our lives subconsciously. It’s awful but the author is proof you can find your way through life with these problems and be successful.

Helpful material in understanding the connection between childhood experiences and adult behavior. Found portions of the book fairly difficult reading. Value for personal development and child raising.
