The Flight From Intimacy YouTubes identify counterdependency as the result of developmental trauma between the age of 9 and 36 months. This trauma prevents the completion of the “pyschological birth” and a child’s emotional separation from his or her parents.The premise of The Flight From Intimacy is that counterdependency is a set of behaviors that can be changed through inner work, by using effective self-healing tools, through conscious, committed relationships, and through therapy.
We correlate developmental trauma with counderdependent behaviors and problems with adult intimacy. We also see counterdependency as a systemic problem. By this we mean that individuals, couples, families, groups, organizations, cultures and nation-states all struggle with intimacy, cooperation and collaboration.

Breaking Free of the Co-dependency Trap YouTube identifies co-dependency as the result of developmental trauma during the first nine months of life that prevents the completion of the infant-parent bonding process.The premise of Breaking Free of the Co-dependency Trap radically challenges the prevailing definition of co-dependency as a permanent, progressive, and incurable addiction. Co-dependency is a set of behaviors that can be changed through inner work, by using effective self-healing tools, through conscious, committed relationships, and through self-help groups such as CODA.
Drawing on our decades of clinical work with individuals, couples and families, we correlate developmental trauma with co-dependent behaviors and relationship problems. Co-dependency issues typically involve problems establishing and maintaining boundaries, clinging and dependent behaviors, people-pleasing, and difficulty achieving success in the world. This YouTube talks about our developmental approach to healing co-dependency. It also talks about our book, Breaking Free of the Co-dependency Trap, contains compelling case histories and practical activities to help you heal your early trauma and transform your self and your primary relationships.
