Riassunto: In Love and Addiction, published 40 years ago and sold as a mass-market paperback on love, Stanton Peele and Archie Brodsky laid out every major issue confronting the addiction field today. This pioneering classic, which was excerpted in Cosmopolitan and spawned the codependence movement, is the first?and still the definitive?book on addictive love. But it is much more than that; it is the book that explains why addiction is not what we think it is. Love and Addiction focuses on dependent love relationships to explore what both love and addiction really are?psychologically, socially, and culturally. Addiction is an overgrown, dependent, destructive relationship. Love is the opposite, a sharing, growth-inspiring one. The authors? analysis makes clear that an addiction is an experience that takes on meaning and power in light of a person?s needs, desires, beliefs, expectations, and fears. By showing how addiction grows out of ordinary human experience, Peele and Brodsky offer a liberating understanding of all addictions?to alcohol, drugs, tobacco, food, gambling, shopping, electronic media, sex, or love. In 1975, Love and Addiction boldly proposed ideas whose truth is only now being recognized:
L'autore: Stanton Peele has been a cutting-edge figure in the addiction field for four decades since the publication of Love and Addiction in 1975. He has been a leader in opening up the field to an experiential, culturally and environmentally sensitive understanding of addiction and to practical, life-management approaches to treatment, harm reduction, and self-help. Along the way, Stanton has written 12 books (including The Meaning of Addiction, Diseasing of America, The Truth About Addiction and Recovery, 7 Tools to Beat Addiction, and Addiction-Proof Your Child) and 250 professional articles, won numerous awards (including from the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs and the Drug Policy Alliance?the leading drug policy reform organization in America), and created the Life Process Program for addiction treatment, which continues to be utilized worldwide. His latest book, Recover! An Empowering Program to Help You Stop Thinking Like an Addict and Reclaim Your Life, (Da Capo, 2014), written with Ilse Thompson, incorporates mindfulness and meditation techniques into a comprehensive self-help program. Stanton also lectures on addiction around the world and has blogged as an addiction expert for The Fix (http://www.thefix.com/tags/stanton-peele), Psychology Today (http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/addiction-in-society), Reason (http://reason.com/people/stanton-peele/all), Rehabs.com (http://www.rehabs.com/author/stanton-peele/), Substance.com (www.substance.com/author/stanton-peele/), and The Huffington Post (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/stanton-peele/). He was named the best addiction blogger by All Treatment and one of the ten most influential figures in the addiction field by The Fix.
