Format: Paperback
This book delves into the co-dependent, counter dependant situations of a relationship. It helps you to understand what is happening between you and your significant other. I knew I had problems in relationships, but I could never understand what it was. There, in plain print I would see my conversations, almost word for word. It explains how one personality feeds upon the other. One personality receives affirmation from the other. Not necessarily are these affirmations healthy. Although it really doesn't tell how to fix the relationship, it helps you to understand what is happening. With the help of the book, I was able to see what I was doing and change my actions to change the situation. It is not a quick fix, but if you recognize what is wrong, you can change what you are doing, therefore change yourself and your relationship.

In recent years, the term "codependent" has made it into common usage. Typically, it's associated with those who - willingly or otherwise - "enable" an abuser of substances or people. Terry takes a broader view, introducing the COUNTERdependent personality and describing how it "takes two to tango" in what he refers to as an addictive relationship style. If you've ever been in or near a relationship that would qualify for the label, this short (under 100 pages) book likely contains a number of insights for you. Terry shows how the needs and styles of the codependent and counterdependent "interlock." He also dedicates a chapter to illustrating the healthy alternative - INTERdependence - and suggests how to move a relationship in that direction.

A very good book for anyone wanting to learn more and understand the dynamics of co-dependency. Gorski explains this all too common disorder in a way that can be understood and he uses good examples that break down the levels and reasons for why the 2 types "do what they do" in the relationship. Highly recommended for professionals and lay persons as well.
