This CD discusses in detail the origin of codependency and its devastating consequences, but more importantly the tools to overcome it. Dr. Howard Liebgold, M.D., a physiatrist, who overcame a claustrophobic condition of 31 years, discovered that co-dependency, self-esteem and anxiety were linked. Breaking from the pattern of codependency gives one even more ammunition to conquer other obstacles in your life. Affectionately known as Dr. Fear, Howard Liebgold was chosen as California's Physician of the Year in 1991. During his medical career, spanning more than 35 years, he served as Chief of Kaiser Foundation Rehabilitation, Head of the Chronic Pain Management Clinic, as well as teaching his phobia classes every week. Dr. Liebgold has appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Unsolved Mysteries, Discovery Channel and PBS.
