About the Blog & Ross A. Rosenberg

Ross Rosenberg, M.Ed., LCPC, CADC, CSAT, is a psychotherapist, international speaker, author, professional trainer, and codependency (renamed to Self-Love Deficit Disorder™), narcissism, trauma and sex addiction expert.  He owns Clinical Care Consultants, a Chicago suburb counseling center and The Self-Love Recovery Institute. His trainings, which feature his original work, have been presented in 30 states and twice in Europe.  Ross’s work has been featured on TV, radio and in online.  Ross’s educational YouTube videos have been viewed over 8.5 million times, and attracted over 78,000 subscribers.

Ross’s first Human Magnet Syndrome book sold over 55,000 units and is translated into Spanish, French and Czech.  His latest book, “The Human Magnet Syndrome: The Codependent Narcissist Trap”, is a complete update and rewrite of the original.  His “Codependency Cure™” work, like his first two books, rewrites what we know about codependency treatment.  Such work is steeped deeply in addictions, attachment, trauma, family systems, and psychodynamic psychological theory.

While the Human Magnet Syndrome books focused on the “how’s” and “why’s” of the codependency problem, his Codependency Cure work explains how resolve or “cure” it.  It reformulates, redefines, and ultimately renames “codependency” to “Self-Love Deficit Disorder.™”   Other original theories/concepts include his, Ten Stage SLDD Recovery Model,” “The Observe Don’t Absorb Technique,” and Healing the Trauma Child Technique, Gaslighting, and more.
