The Intimacy Factor
The Ground Rules for Overcoming the Obstacles to Truth, Respect, and Lasting LoveBook - 2003
A new book on intimacy and relationships from the bestselling author of Facing Codependence and Facing Love Addiction.
Pia Mellody's previous books showed the fruits of her groundbreaking programs dealing with codependence at The Meadows Treatment Centre in Wickenburg, Arizona. In her first book in 10 years, Pia Mellody diagnoses causes of faulty relationships (many of them rooted in childhood) and provides tools such as boundary-work skills for readers to heal themselves, thus enabling them to achieve and maintain intimacy.
Another thread of the book is how the sustaining of healthy relationships can activate spiritual principles, in turn cultivating self-esteem. This ultimately frees readers to accept their own limitations and to be 'perfectly imperfect'. Pia Mellody's goal is to show people how to attain the intimacy they need and deserve.
