Master Therapist Jef Gazley is our special guest today as he will continue his discussion from his last visit. Looking at unhealthly attachments we have the birth of co-dependency and in this unhealthy bonding we have responses that are manifested later in life. Two of those responses are repetition compulsion and trauma bonding. His statement on these two discusion topics is this:

"If one has grown up in a traumatic or dysfunctional family, that person often accepts the blame and shame and is then delayed in their individuation due to developing what is called a repetition compulsion. A repetition compulsion is repeating a self-destructive pattern or behavior without adjusting that behavior and with no chance of ultimate success. These wounded children when they become adults become trauma bonded to the type of person who originally abused or let them down." and the the cycle continues.
