Is a Keynote by Next Week Possible? Find Out How.

This is a clip from Ross Rosenberg’s 6-hour Codependency Cure seminar video. Ross talks about how and why attachment trauma, or the harm caused to a child by their pathologically narcissistic parent causes codependency. Ross also teaches about his Trauma Continuum concept. He demonstrates that a form of PTSD, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, is also responsible for the creation of codependency. He introduces the different levels of trauma and how they manifest emotionally, especially in dysfunctional relationships.

Ross discusses the role of defense mechanisms in mitigating and/or buffering the trauma. His focus is especially on repression and suppression.
