Show Notes

Allen and Thom welcome Sherry Gaba, LCSW and Author of Love Smacked: How to Stop the Cycle of Relationship Addiction and Codependency to find Everlasting Love and Wake Up Recovery for Codependents to the conversation. Sherry gives a brief and useful history lesson on what codependency is and how our thinking about it has evolved over the years. The three explore the common ground with codependency recovery and emotional sobriety. Sherry emphasizes that codependency is sometimes used in a negative way, but that the essence of her work is helping people to understand how to free themselves from toxic relationships. A lively conversation between 3 veteran mental health professionals who love what they do. We highly recommend Sherry’s new book, Love Smacked!
