Reconceptualizing Codependency in Women: A Sense of Connectedness, Not Pathology.
Granello, Darcy Haag; Beamish, Patricia M.
Journal of Mental Health Counseling, v20 n4 p344-58 Oct 1998
Critiques the codependency construct as it is currently applied and examines how the concept is used to blame and label women. The construct ignores economic and social reality, perpetuates victim-blaming, and uses the male emphasis on individuation and autonomy as normative. Codependency is reframed as a sense of social connectedness and resiliency in women. (Author/MKA)
