The Human Magnet Syndrome Song

About The BookThe Human Magnet Syndrome

Romantic relationships are formed instinctively, not so much by what is seen, felt, or thought, but more by an irresistible, invisible, and seductive relationship force.  Ross Rosenberg, a seasoned psychotherapist, professional trainer and recovering codependent, calls this compelling and seductive “love force” the Human Magnet Syndrome.  It brings together oppositely matched but compatible codependents and pathological narcissists, who both mistake their soul mate mirage for their cellmate reality.

“Chemistry,” or the intuitive knowingness of perfect compatibility, is synonymous with the Human Magnet Syndrome.  This is the attraction force that brings compatibly opposite, but exquisitely matched, lovers together: codependents and narcissists.

This magnetic love connection predictably begins like a fairy-tale, but quickly morphs into a painful “seesaw” of love and hate and hope and disappointment.  The experience of relational perfection is really just a guise for the temporary suspension of pathological loneliness, an excruciatingly painful condition that plagues both codependents and narcissists.  At the end of the day, the codependent’s dreams of a soul mate invariably dissolve into a dysfunctional relationship reality.   …Read More

Endorsements for “The Human Magnet Syndrome

– Melody Beattie,  One of America’s most beloved self-help authors and a household name in addiction & recovery circles.  Her international bestselling book, Codependent No More, introduced the world to the term “codependency,” & has sold over 5 million copies in just the U.S. alone.

“Ross Rosenberg’s important work, “The Human Magnet Syndrome: Why We Love People Who Hurt Us,” challenges us to continue looking at relationship dynamics to see how our experiences affected us and will continue to affect others. Join this forward-looking movement by reading a book that draws on the discoveries of the past, but adds more wisdom combined with effective answers. It’s both the next step in evolution and a revelation.  I recommend ”The Human Magnet Syndrome” to those who work in social services, education, chemical dependency or the counseling fields and to the people they touch. It’s time to wake up and this brilliant book sounds the alarm we need.”

”“Born in the cauldron of personal experience of suffering and healing, and honed through years of professional experience, this book will help anyone understand the attractors of love and consequent suffering. I recommend it to couples who are mystified by the depth and repetition of their pain, and to therapists whose destiny is to help them.”                …Read More Endorsements

Ross’s Upcoming Book

“The Codependency Cure: Recovering from Self-Love Deficit Disorder” like the The Human Magnet Syndrome, will provide original and ground-breaking self-help content.  In it he completely redefines and reconceptualizes codependency and the treatment of it.  Self-Love Deficit Disorder” breathes a fresh new perspective into what we know as codependency, while stripping it of its shaming connotations and pejorative and degrading interpretation.  As Ross often says, “it is time to take the shame out of the name while focusing on the shame that causes it.”  Ross’s most current video seminar, by the same name, includes much of the content that will be featured in this book.  Click  HERE to learn more about it or HERE to purchase it.
