Do You Have Self-Love Deficit Disorder™?

"Self-Love Deficit Disorder™" or SLDD, is Ross Rosenberg's crucial reformulation of "codependency." Unlike its predecessor, SLDD neither implies emotional fragility nor weakness. Moreover, it identifies the formerly invisible core problems while integrating with Ross's Self-Love Recovery Treatment Program, AKA "The Codependency Cure™." With a term that makes sense, and treatment that works, there is hope for people the mental health fields seem to have forgotten.

The Human Magnet Syndrome:
The Codependent Narcissist Trap

155,000 Copies Sold. Published In 12 Languages.

The Human Magnet Syndrome: The Codependent Narcissist Trap explains why people are magnetically and irresistibly drawn together, not so much by what they see, feel and think, but more by invisible unconscious relationship force. It explains relational “chemistry” and why its irresistibly alluring and seductive “love force” is impossible to avoid. Codependents and pathological narcissists simply cannot avoid HMS’s inevitable dysfunctional opposite match-up. What starts off as the codependent’s dream “soul mate” almost always transforms into their nightmare “cellmate.”

The Observe Don't Absorb Technique©

"I learned long ago to never wrestle with pigs.
You'll get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it."

George Benard Shaw

The Observe Don’t Absorb Technique (ODA) provides a person who is manipulated and/or harmed by an individual who derives power and control through the use of emotional domination, the capacity to set successful boundaries with Pathological Narcissists (NPD, BPD, ASPD and addicts), and survive the backlash, with a variety of insights, strategies, and tools.

Through the use of this powerfully effective defense technique, survivors of Narcissistic Abuse are educated on how to “fight back” with the most potent weapon of all: purposeful, mindful, and conscious dissociation. By allowing narcissists to trigger or activate them emotionally, they are helplessly pulled into a fight in which they believe they can win, but never do.
