This work presents clinical examples to reveal a fresh understanding of the therapist's feelings within the content of treatment. At the heart of Elkaim's technique is self-reference. He demonstrates how therapists can use their own experiences as powerful tools of intervention. Elkaim also shows how to work with crippling reciprocal double binds, when, for example, someone wants to be loved but pushes his loved ones away out of fear that love is followed by loss. The book should be of use to anyone who works with couples or families.

Everyone thrives on love, comfort, and the safety of family, friends, and community. But if you are denied these basic comforts early in life, whether through a lack of physical affection or emotional bonding, you may develop intense fears of abandonment that can last well into adulthood—fears so powerful that they can actually cause you to push people away. If you suffer from fears of abandonment, you may have underlying feelings of anger, shame, fear, anxiety, depression, and grief. These emotions are intense and painful, and when they surface they can lead to a number of negative behaviors, such as jealousy, clinging, and emotional blackmail. In Love Me, Don’t Leave Me, therapist Michelle Skeen combines acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), schema therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) to help you identify the root of your fears. In this book you’ll learn how schema coping behaviors—deeply entrenched and automatic behaviors rooted in childhood experiences and fears—can take over and cause you to inadvertently sabotage your relationships. By recognizing these coping behaviors and understanding their cause, you will not only gain powerful insights into your own mind, but also into the minds of those around you. If you are ready to break the self-fulfilling cycle of mistrust, clinginess, and heartbreak and start building lasting, trusting relationships, this book will be your guide.

And how after developing serious leg problems. These problems were overcome to allow him to live as a dog should.
If you're reading this book, I am assuming you either directly or indirectly have been affected by abuse. Perhaps you are living in the silence as I did for over four decades. If this is the case this book is dedicated to you. I give you my sincere admonition to tell your story as many times as needed to move out of the darkness and into the light. This book is about my nine-year journey in resurrecting my soul, mending my spirit, clearing my mind and opening up my heart. May of 1996 will be forever etched as one the darkest periods of my life. I was facing my second shoplifting charge, which resulted in me hitting rock bottom. For the first time in years I reached out to God asking for a second chance in life. Promising him if he granted this I would do everything humanly possible to make this world a better place than I found it. The healing process is hard and arduous. This book depicts the ups and downs, the mass confusion of finding yourself, healing your inner child, changing your toxic belief system and finding your purpose and passions. The key to unlocking the door to my future started with a journey into the past. My motive for writing this book is to educate society on the dynamics of abuse and its lingering and cyclic nature. It is my hope that this book inspires other abuse victims to free themselves from the dreaded silence. Acknowledging the abuse is the first step in the healing process and breaking the silence opens the door to stopping abuse cycles.
