Awakening Hope. A Developmental, Behavioral, Biological Approach to Codependency Treatment (2011) by Mary Crocker Cook, Robertson Publishing  ISBN978-1611700312 Written in a conversational style, the text draws from current attachment and health research to create a strong 3-pronged foundation for Codependency intervention and treatment planning.


The text opens with Mary Crocker Cook's personal codependency "bottom," the crisis that led her to connect attachment disruption with codependency.


Awakening Hope provides a comprehensive overview of attachment research both from Bowlby and Main, and later adult attachment researchers such as Bartholomew, Holmes, and Mikulincer.


Avoidant and Anxious attachment styles are linked to key anxious and avoidant codependent behavior styles, with an exploration of avoidant codependency behaviors that is not addressed in other literature.


Awakening Hope provides the Maunder, Lacklund, and Stroufe research linking attachment disruption with later physical illness as a result of adrenal system damage. This information is vital for new counselors who may be addressing the underlying codependency that often contributes to multiple relapse episodes for clients in treatment.
