Sharon Wegscheider-Cruse and Joseph Cruse, M.D.
Sharon Wegscheider-Cruse and Joseph Cruse, M.D. have updated and expanded this classic. They begin with a useful description of the evolution of co-alcoholic, and codependent as words and concepts, as well as the expansion of our ideas of dependencies and addictions to “process addictions” such as gambling, porn, shopping, cutting, and several others. Of particular interest is the chapter “Codependency and the Brain” which is a brief overview of what researchers are learning about pathways, written in an easy chatty style. We celebrate our wonderful Founders whose words continue to bring healing and hope to so many.
