The book for couples battling the ravages of addictions and codependency, and for those who aspire to healthy, lasting, authentic love.
Recovering Love is the first self-help guide to focus on ways for couples to work together to defeat codependent behaviors without ending their relationships. Dr. Cookerly describes the differences between authentic "mate love" and codependency and how codependency inhibits intimacy, sexual fulfillment, and the growth of healthy love. Readers will discover how to defeat the special problems of codependency through loving teamwork.
Recovering Love explores techniques couples can use to escape the destructive victim-rescuer-persecutor triangle with self-love and team love. Case examples show how couples are using Dr. Cookerly's CoRecovery love knowledge to put an end to codependency factors that prevent them from succeeding at love. Included are eight major ways people demonstrate love, and their benefits to health, self-esteem, and relationships.
