This book was really helpful to understand how caretaking personality works, how it originates and how to go about treating it. Although heavy on the technical jargon at certain points, I found the scientific approach to be quite helpful and a good companion to more positive psychology/self-help books. If you are looking to get a better understanding of caretaking personality disorder, this should definitely be on your list.
