Review

aHer writing skills combine seemingly effortless narrative with clear formulations and straightforward advice.a ---ForeWord magazine

aThis book is bound to become a codependence classic. It should be required reading for all who seek to create healthy, balanced relationships in their lives.a ---Claudia Black, PhD.

aCasey's message comes from her years of sobriety and those of others. The advice to stop judging others and take responsibility for oneself comes through loud and clear. Casey packs a lot in a little digestible book. Recommended for public libraries.a ---Library Journal

a A remarkable book written in easy-to-understand language with great honesty. The cornerstones of this book are stepping stones to letting go of being a victim and reestablishing hope and freedom in one's life.a -Jerry Jampolsky, M.D., founder of The International Center for Attitudinal Healing

aIn this helpful and healing paperback, Casey explores the problem of codependency, which is when we aspend our entire life letting the actions or words or mere glances of others trigger my behavior, feelings, my attitude, my self-assessment, and thus my plan for each day, as well as my imagined future.a An antidote to this powerlessness is detachment which she defines as athe ability to care deeply about a situation or another person from an objective point of view. We are able to care but not be controlled by or invested in how another person responds to us.aa -Fred Brussat, www.SpiritualityandPractice.com

"In this must-read book, Karen Casey outlines the ongoing process of detachment, which ultimately means dealing with our control issues and fear. Her honesty about detachment as a lifelong process brings comfort and encouragement by letting us know we're not the only ones who haven't conquered our tendencies to control people, places and things. And by her use of many stories about how other people--men and women alike--are finding the peace that detachment brings, and her wonderful way of illuminating what detaching is and isn't, readers will discover how to connect with their inherent power, no matter what Life brings. Thanks Karen, for writing this book and for a lifetime of dedicated service that has made this world a better place." -Melody Beattie, author of the bestselling "Codependent No More"

"A remarkable book written in easy-to-understand language with great honesty. The cornerstones of this book are stepping stones to letting go of being a victim and reestablishing hope and freedom in one's life." --Jerry Jampolsky, M.D., founder of The International Center for Attitudinal Healing

"Karen Casey captures the experience, strength, and hope that are essential to maintaining healthy relationships with each other and with ourselves." --William C. Moyers, author of "Broken"

"In this helpful and healing paperback, Casey explores the problem of codependency, which is when we 'spend our entire life letting the actions or words or mere glances of others trigger my behavior, feelings, my attitude, my self-assessment, and thus my plan for each day, as well as my imagined future.' An antidote to this powerlessness is detachment which she defines as 'the ability to care deeply about a situation or another person from an objective point of view. We are able to care but not be controlled by or invested in how another person responds to us.'" -Fred Brussat, www.SpiritualityandPractice.com

"This book is bound to become a codependence classic. It should be required reading for all who seek to create healthy, balanced relationships in their lives." --Claudia Black, PhD.

Synopsis

A codependent lives 'as if' - as if what others think matters more than what they think, as if they can please or change someone else, as if they have to answer to another person or persons rather than their own inner voice and Higher Power. It's an insidious and pervasive addiction. And there is a simple way out of it - detachment. Karen Casey takes us through the steps of detachment - admitting our attachment, surrendering outcome, forgiving, focusing our attention on what works. When we give up judging others, we become accountable for our own behaviour and let others - spouses, family, co-workers - be accountable for themselves.The power of detachment is a power anyone can claim. It's the power of sanity, of peace, of finding our own inner strength. Casey shares insights and tools she's discovered in her own decades of sobriety and in talking with dozens of other codependents. Her unique treatment of this much talked about but not clearly understood syndrome focuses not on naming or on cause, but on the individual's own power to detach from the bad situation and make a choice for recovery.

"Codependence and the Power of Detachment" is sure to become the new classic in the field.
