Recovery from Codependency in SLAA
A big book Approach
- A deeply rooted compulsive behaviour. We attempted to use others (our mates) as our sole source of identify, value and well-being. (Coda Welcome)
- A person belonging to a dysfunctional, one-sided relationship where one person relies on the other for meeting nearly all of their emotional and self-esteem needs. – Psychcentral.com
- An emotional and behavioral condition that affects an individual’s ability to have a healthy, mutually satisfying relationship. It is also known as “relationship addiction” because people with codependency often form or maintain relationships that are one-sided, emotionally destructive and/or abusive. – mentalhealth.org
- Codependence is an imbalanced relationship pattern where one partner assumes a high-cost ‘giver-rescuer’ role and the other the ‘taker-victim’ role – Shawn Meghan Burn, PhD.
