Love Addiction: Myth vs. Reality

By Caroline Becker, LISAC, LAC
Therapist, The Meadows Outpatient Center

Pia Mellody defines love addiction as: “A condition in which individuals…are attracted to somebody who will neglect the relationship.” This creates a co-dependent love dance that is unhealthy, frustrating and debilitating to the love addict, yet they remain entrenched in a fantasy of what was or what might be.

Free Lecture Series - Dallas, Texas - April 19, 2011

Suzanne Wallace, LCDC, CSAT, will be speaking at the Dallas Free Lecture on April 19, 2011, at the Unity Church of Dallas, Sanctuary, 6525 Forest Lane, Dallas, TX 75230 from 7:00-8:30 pm.

The title of the presentation is "What's Love Got to Do With It? Obsession, Compulsion, Addiction". Love is a normal desire that when not met, approximately early in our childhood can create reactionary distortions for individuals. This lecture will focus on what is appropriate, what is distorted, and the effects of each on people. Attendees will learn how to know what healthy love is, to identify obsession, compulsion, and addiction, and to know what is necessary to move into a place of openness to experience healthy love.
