Ohio (AP The subject of women who love too much has exploded onto the market in books and on television talk shows but some say it is a behavioral pat tem that has always existed • Women who love too much are a phenomenon about women s relationships of all times.” said Elizabeth Heed a Methodist minister who leads several therapy groups for women “It s catching on now because we’ve found a way to control it Co dependency is the clinical name for women who love too much who land in abusive or manipulative relationships because they lack the self esteem to be suffi clernly self reliant Books about it have been around for about IO years, Heed said. but the issue was focus ed by Robin Norwood's 19H5 book Women Who bove Too Much, largely bec ause of its ti tie Co-dependency, which can lead to physical and mental abuse, is a learned behavior that is perpetuated in American society by the family, church and school. Heed said “Our parents teach us to tie nice little girls ... to take care of others before we take care of ourselves.” she said She contends that women’s personalities are molded this way as children and many never develop their own self identity Women who look outside themselves for self worth and identity seek reassurance from outside things and other people.’ she said They set themselves up for fear guilt confusion and hurt ” Co-dependency can manifest itself as chronic headaches, backaches gastrointestinal problems and cancer, she said Men can also be codependent but it s not as common as with women and is shown lr other ways, Heed said Men are more con cerned with impression management, whict is demonstrated rn sports, on the job and or dates The Women's Diagnostic Center of the Mount Carmel Medical Center recently began a six week seminar on ^dependency The 15-person limit was reached so quickly that a second group was created Most of th* women registered for the $45 seminar belong lo other support groups, such as Children ol Alcoholics. CHOICES for battered women or Incest Survivors Anonymous At the groups first meeting, several women clutched paperback copies of Women Who Utve Too Much, which is the name given the seminar Two women had traveled ») miles from Cambridge to attend As Reed described some primary characteristics of independent women, par ticipants nodded in agreement They recognized relationship addiction "cl tnging” relationships and Hie need to feel in dispensable ‘ laving too much puts us out of touch with our own feelings because we keep wanting to please others Heed told the group One woman participants are not asked lo identify themselves said, “I ve tieen in bad relationships and I keep making the same mistakes.” “I’m a child of an alcoholic mother and now I'm married to an alcoholic,” said another Trying to hold back tears another woman told th** group “I was abused when I was a child and now my husband abuses me But I still love him I just want to know why ” Heed told the group that the only way to overcome co-dependency is to first unders land and recognize it The term co-dependency came out of an alcohol abuse context to describe the spouse of an alcoholic.” she said A number of books were written about alcoholics, but it wasn’t until the mid 1970s that books began to ap pear describing partners of alcoholics and their problems Most of us have an addiction to something and women tend to have an ad uiCUon to relationships, even when they are bad she said I'o-dependenU try to nurture their mate while denying themselves emotional and even physical well tieing Heed said For ex ample, many battered women slav with abusive partners However symptoms can tie displayed in less extreme ways such as a mother who continues to pamper her adult children fuss mg over them arui discouraging them from leaving the nest she said During the first few weeks of the seminarClub news, photo Organisations are invited to submit news tor the Club Notes which are published each Thursday in the Herald-Zeitung The in formation snould be submit ted as soon atter the meeting as possible To arrange for a / Heed will dis* uss th* characteristic > of < o dependency .md ^ vs th. <>dependency level of each participant Then the women w!,i learn to lecognh» wnen tfwv ^re engag mg in co dependent behav lur I he tiest way to treat co dependent y is to talk about it through individual or group therapy Heed said t o dependenc y is a disease like alcoholism compulsive overeating or overspending she said It v a liseasr that can tie treated but not curedpolicies outlined photograph of t tub ac tivities call Lifestyles t liter Dana Overstreet at 61u> 9144 Club representatives may also submit short items to announce meetings which will be published in the Activities which runs each Wednesday and Sunday ;
