    Episode 14: Counter-Dependence

    Episode 14: Counter-Dependence

    Host Gail Ferguson Jones talks with Clinical Psychologist Barry Weinhold, who has coined the phrase "counter-dependence," which he describes as living a false self that keeps one from establishing intimate relationships.
    Weinhold is the author of more than 75 books, the latest of which is titled "Get Real. The Hazard of Living Out of Your False Self." He and his wife, Janae, are co-directors of the Colorado Institute for Conflict Resolution and Creative Leadership.
    In this episode, Weinhold discusses how counter-dependence, also described as radical self-reliance, is the inability to establish healthy relationships and, if untreated, leads to addiction, isolation and depression.
