How has the concept of codependency affected your views of love and selfless giving?
Does the Church teach codependency in the name of Christian love?
What does Christian spirituality have to contribute unto recovery from codependent attitudes and behavior?
These and other issues will be explored in these three hours of audio teaching by Dr. St. Romain. The workshop was originally presented to the staff at Liguori Publications. Handout materials provided, along with a PDF copy of his book: Freedom from Codependency: A Christian Pathway.
