Stop being a victim and develop healthy, happy relationships A codependent lives as if what others think matters more than what they think, and as if they can please or change someone else. It' s an insidious and pervasive addiction. And there is a simple way out of it: detachment. Best-selling author Karen Casey shares the insights and tools she's discovered in her own decades of sobriety and in talking with other codependents.
Her unique treatment of this much talked about, but not clearly understood, syndrome focuses not on the cause, but on the individual's own power to detach from a bad situation and make a choice for recovery.
Casey takes readers through the steps of detaching-admitting our attachment, surrendering outcome, forgiving, focusing our attention on what works. She describes how to pay attention, be aware, and take care of ourselves, and let others-husbands, family, coworkers-be accountable for themselves.
Codependence and the Power of Detachment shows that detachment is a power anyone can claim. It is the power of sanity, of peace, of finding one's own inner strength.

Disappointed at the content
One massive Al Anon advertisement. Author gives multiple scenarios of Co dependence and provides absolutely NO helpful advice to moving through these situations, only solutions given are "Go to Al Anon meeting"????
