Book Overview

In her pioneering Facing Codependence, Pia Mellody traced the origins of codependence back to childhood and a wide range of emotional, spiritual, intellectual, physical, and sexual abuses. Now in this innovative new workbook, she presents a step-by-step journal-keeping method for moving toward recovery from codependence. Based on such concepts as the "precious child" and the five core symptoms of codependence, along with the Twelve-Step process of...

Fantastic Book

Must read for people in recovery.

This is a great tool if you want to get free !

This workbook, to be used in conjunction with "Facing Codependency" is a fantastic tool in breaking the heavy denial that comes with codependency, taking a clear objective look at where the codependent beliefs came from (without blaming others), seeing the true impact of this disease on our lives and based on that information helps us to decide for ourselves clearly what steps to take to work towards true freedom and recovery. I appreciate that both these books encourage self-responsibility and does not just present the (yes, depressing at times) negative aspects of this devastating disease but the HOPE of what "freedom" looks like and very specifically as we work through the book what health and freedom will look like for us! Happy recovery!

Very in-depth and constructive, from past-present-future

This workbook is the best I've used for codependence recovery, I highly recommend it when used in conjunction with Facing Codependence (Don't get the workbook without also getting Facing Codependence).It's really helped me make some great strides and insight into my dysfunctional boundaries and behaviors.

Use it if you dare

This is a wonderful companion workbook to Pia Mellody's Facing Codependence. Mellody first has you read specific pages in Facing Codependence, after which she has you complete the corresponding writing exercises in Breaking Free. The exercises are short, thorough, and extremely well organized -- and because of that, not hard to do. Keep in mind though that if you do the exercises, you might never think about your relationships the same way again. And that's a GOOD thing -- or at least it was for me. I'd highly recommend this to anyone wanting to change dysfunctional relationship patterns.

Finding freedom from self

This workbook enables you to look at your attitudes, feelings and behaviors by using exercises that review daily life. In addition, by encompassing the tradidtional AA 12 Steps, you can focus your recovery on letting go, relying on your God and admitting your excessive emotional outbreaks. It helped me immensley to find out how to turn on my light from the inside instead of expecting and wishing that it would happen from those around me.
