Excellent (on ADD/NARC/SEX/ADDICTION/LGBT)

Dr Rob is a very comprehensive voice for men in my position, if you or your loved one is dealing with narcissism, ADHD, sex addiction, drug addiction, etc- this is the place for you. One of the most insightful podcasts I’ve ever found. Thank you!

Thank you !

Dr. Rob, thank you for your thoughts and your reflections. I have greatly benefitted from your podcasts and I feel that Prodependence really speaks to what I need for my recovery.
I was excited to listen to your recent two-part podcast on prodependence. I usually take away a lot from your podcasts and this time I found that I actually left a lot behind. I would be interested in hearing in a future podcast about what you like and/or even admire about, for example, Melanie Beattie’s work.

The 12-step disease-based model wasn’t working for me (anymore) and prodependence (from my superficial understanding of it) seems more adapted to my needs and addresses all those things I’d leave behind in those meetings. I’m excited to learn more about it.

However, I do identify with Beattie’s work and while I respect and appreciate that you’re also addressing those who aren’t necessarily (for lack of a better term) “influenced” from childhood experiences, my Part 2 podcast takeaway was “here’s what’s wrong with codependency; here’s what’s wrong with _________’s work”. I was looking forward to furthering my understanding of prodependence via your usual testimony and examples (which speak to my learning style and a big reason why I listen to you daily).

These step programs weren’t always adapted for me but as they say, “take what you like and leave the rest.” For me, it sounds like prodependence would help make up for all those ideas, slogans, etc. that weren’t speaking to me and thus, left behind.

Thank you again, Dr. Rob ! I’m so grateful for your expertise, authenticity, and dedication to this podcast !
