Codependency Checklist Finally, this worksheet is a codependency checklist that includes some resources for further information on codependency, and lists support groups for codependency.

This delves into healthy versus codependent thought patterns and behaviors. Codependent Parents: Consequences for Children Codependency was originally thought of as a disorder that affected the children and spouses of alcoholics and substance abusers. In fact, having a codependent parent can lead a child to codependency as well.

This is usually due to the parent not having had their own developmental needs met while they were growing up. Since these codependent children grow up not having their developmental needs met either, this can create a cycle of codependency passed down from generation to generation.

Being codependent can be particularly harmful for parents of addicted children Clearview Treatment Programs.

This is one of the ways that codependency can be especially tricky — often people with these tendencies believe they are being helpful, or that their actions are necessary for the other person in the relationship. This work can be hard to identify in ourselves, so having a supportive professional help us untangle these relationships can be crucial. A Take-Home Message For years, the concept of codependency has been criticized for being ill-defined, but over the last few decades, the construct of codependency has become more well-defined and well-researched, as it has been fitted with an empirical base.

Most importantly, codependency has been recognized as a relationship dynamic that affects people with all sorts of childhood trauma, not just the children or spouses of alcoholics or substance abusers.

For people who are codependent, there are plenty of ways to overcome codependency. Aside from seeking professional help, there are all sorts of worksheets and books such as the ones highlighted above by people who have overcome codependency.

The most important thing to remember is that while everyone has loved ones and feels responsible for those loved ones, it can be unhealthy when one hinges their identity on someone else. Ultimately, everyone is responsible for their own actions and feelings. What is your experience with codependency? Are there relationships in your life in which you or the other person tend to exhibit codependent tendencies?

Are their relationships from cultural movies or TV shows that provide examples of these kinds of relationships? References Cermak, T.

Focus on the Family and Chemical Dependency, 8 1 , The current study examined 53 introductory Psychology textbooks, published between and , for their coverage of the field of Community Psychology. The lack of adequate coverage of this field in most introductory Psychology textbooks has significant implications for attracting undergraduates to this content area.

Fifty percent of the textbook authors responded to an email that provided them information regarding the current study, and many indicated that new versions of their textbooks could include information from the field of Community Psychology. This positive response suggests that many authors are willing to better represent the field of Community Psychology in their introductory Psychology textbooks. This field incorporates ecological theory, research, and practice regarding contextual issues regarding the relationship and mutual influences between people and their social environments Kelly, This discipline seeks to prevent adversities and promote wellness through building upon existing community assets and individual strengths Cowen, Community Psychology is deeply rooted in values including social justice, empowerment, and collaboration, which are used to address the issues and problems plaguing our society such as poverty, homelessness, and drug abuse Moritsugu et al.

Undergraduates exposed to Community Psychology could use its principles in their future careers, and some might even decide to obtain further training in this discipline. Evidence of Underrepresentation There is evidence that the field of Community Psychology is underrepresented in introductory Psychology textbooks.

As an example, Lucas, Raley, Washington, and Blazek examined 57 full length and brief introductory Psychology textbooks published between and Finally, Griggs and Jackson analyzed nine brief introductory Psychology textbooks published between and , and their article indicated no mention of the field of Community Psychology. Two of the studies above are dated, as the study by Lucas et al. In addition, the Griggs and Jackson study only analyzed brief introductory Psychology textbooks. There is a need to examine introductory Psychology textbooks that have been more recently published.

The purpose of the present study is to analyze the extent to which Community Psychology is mentioned in full length as opposed to brief introduction to Psychology textbooks published between and In addition, the study investigated whether a textbook included an adequate discussion of the field.

The results of this study provide up-to-date information about the coverage of Community Psychology that is available to students through introductory Psychology textbooks. Methods Materials The sample included 53 introductory Psychology textbooks.

Each textbook was the most recent edition, published between and Either a physical or electronic version of each textbook was reviewed. The electronic version of a textbook was accessed via site.

Procedure As an initial step, a list of the most recent editions of introduction to Psychology textbooks was assembled. The list was generated using a broad search on Google, and then using a more refined search on Textbooks. Next, a search was done on site. If either term was mentioned, then the location of either term as well as the description provided for either term were recorded. If a textbook included a discussion of the various subfields in Psychology, to be counted as an adequate description, Community Psychology had to be mentioned and described alongside the other subfields in Psychology.

In addition, if an author mentioned Community Psychology in two different textbooks, both accounts of the descriptions of Community Psychology were recorded e. Results A total of 53 introductory Psychology textbooks were analyzed for naming and describing the field of Community Psychology.

Five textbooks that mentioned the term Community Psychology did not include an adequate representation or definition. For instance, three referenced Community Psychology in the Appendix, one referenced the field in a chapter devoted to psychological treatment methods, and one referenced the field in a chapter devoted to other applications of Psychology. Table 1 presents the textbooks that were included in this study in chronological order according to their publication date.

Those that mentioned the term Community Psychology were highlighted in yellow. Additionally, Table 1 indicates which highlighted textbooks contained an adequate representation of Community Psychology. Following this data collection, we contacted the authors of the introductory Psychology textbooks and indicated the relatively low percentage of textbooks with any mention of Community Psychology.

Furthermore, we indicated a willingness to work with them on revisions of their textbooks if new ones were released see Appendix A. Nevid, personal communication, Nov. Sanderson, personal communication, Nov. Admittedly, all intro psychology books are bursting at the seams, and already far too long, largely because we try to include far too much.

Lilienfeld, personal communication, Oct. DeWall, personal communication, Oct. Feist, personal communication, Oct. White, personal communication, Oct. Freberg, personal communication, Oct. At a bare minimum we see ensuring that the material we described above is presented …differentiating the roles of social psychology, health psychology, and community psychology, as well as by explicitly recognizing community psychologists currently cited in the text.

Of course much more might be possible, depending on what your perusal of our materials suggests to you" J. Martini, personal communication, Nov. Discussion In summary, as shown in Table 1, most introduction to Psychology textbooks published between and do not contain any reference to Community Psychology.

In addition to their responses, several of the authors expressed an openness to include Community Psychology content in future editions which was an unanticipated and welcome second-order outcome of our study. Coverage of Community Psychology Content The essential concepts of Community Psychology were mentioned in at least several textbooks, and these descriptions included empowerment, providing care to marginalized populations, principles of ecological theory, prevention, sense of community, and improving the overall quality of communities.

It is apparent that there are at least some textbooks that provide both the Community Psychology term and an adequate description of the field. Limitations Future researchers could collect data on the overall popularity of each textbook in this study. Doing so may provide a more comprehensible approximation of the number of students that are exposed to the field of Community Psychology in their introduction to Psychology textbooks. It is also of importance to review textbooks in other subfields of Psychology abnormal, social, developmental as well as other disciplines social work, psychiatry.

There is also a need to evaluate non-US based introduction to Psychology textbooks in future studies. Qualitative analyses of Community Psychology content would also add more rigor to future studies. Finally, future studies could review materials to determine how well Community Psychology as a field is represented in Internet social media sources.

As one possible action step, Community Psychologists might encourage the use of those introduction to Psychology textbooks that do contain appropriate coverage of this field in their respective institutions and courses, and these are noted in Table 1. We have sent positive and congratulatory emails to several textbook authors who have represented the field of Community Psychology extremely well, and these authors emailed us back their appreciation for this feedback.

Our group is also currently sending to authors, who expressed interest in more information about the field, definitions of Community Psychology as well as descriptions of possible jobs available for those trained in this area, which are located on the website of the Society for Community Research and Action In addition, during our interactions with publishers, there are also opportunities for us to encourage the adoption of Community Psychology material in a variety of dissemination products.

As an example, recently, the Psychology editor of a major publisher approached the last author with a request to write a textbook for the field of Community Psychology.

This began a series of discussions, and the editor was very open to exploring opportunities regarding introducing the field of Community Psychology into two introductory Psychology textbooks that were currently being written for this publisher, as well as other books on careers in Psychology.
