This is Ross Rosenberg’s post-“Human Magnet Syndrome” work. Although these books revolutionized the way we conceptualize codependency, narcissism, and the attraction dynamics that naturally but dysfunctionally pull them together, it was only phase one Rosenberg’s work. While “The Human Magnet Syndrome” was Ross’s why work, the “Codependency Cure,” describes what to do about it.
The “Codependency Cure” concepts and practical tools completely overhauls the concept of “codependency/codependent” while replacing them with less stigmatizing terms: “Self-Love Deficit Disorder/SLDD” and “Self-Love Deficient/SLD.” Ross didn’t stop with the new terms; he created supportive theories, explanations, and practical tools to fit them. Such has revolutionized the treatment of “codependency” as has his Human Magnet Syndrome work.
The Codependency Cure
This video focuses on the broad introduction and overview of Ross’s next phase of work. It rewrites what we know about “codependency” and the treatment of it. It is filled with intuitively understandable (to both the mental health practitioner and layperson) ideas, explanations, practical instruction, as well as brand-new theoretical formulations for both the problem of SLDD, and the cure – “Self-Love Abundance!The 11-Stage Self-Love Recovery™ Treatment Program
This video starts where the first one left off. Instead of being a broad introduction of concepts, it delves deeply into the primary theoretical and practical concepts that are meant to transform codependency into the “Self-Love Abundance” cure. It describes the treatment program and each of its stages.
This video is required information and explanations about the addictive elements of codependency or Self-Love Deficit Disorder. Codependency addiction manifests as a repetitive and compulsive pattern of relationships with pathologically narcissistic lovers. Short or long-term relationships with narcissists, their drug of choice, create temporary or fleeting moments of euphoria and feelings of relational perfection. Like a drug addiction, codependents seek to replicate the initial blissful experience of connection and emotional fulfillment. Sadly, like any drug or process addiction, the codependent cannot control the “drug” or narcissist who, by their very nature, cannot be controlled.
The “Observe Don’t Absorb” technique
The “Observe Don’t Absorb (ODA)” technique empowers and assists victims of narcissistic abuse, with a variety of insights, strategies, and survival tools. The main tenant of ODA is to avoid the forever losing proposition of engaging narcissists in conflict. ODA essentially enables people to successfully set boundaries with Pathological Narcissists, survive the backlash, and safely end their harmful and dysfunctional relationships. Not only does ODA teach emotional detachment from purposefully manipulative and cunning narcissists, it greatly enhances one’s mental health. It can be used as an effective every-day technique that has the potential be helpful in all situations - from the mundane to the very stressful and critical.
