Ross Rosenberg is the owner of Clinical Care Consultants, a multi-location Chicago area counseling center, and Self-Love Recovery Institute, a personal development and professional training company. He is a psychotherapist, educator, expert witness and author. Ross is known globally for his expertise in codependency (Self-Love Deficit Disorder™), narcissism, sex addiction and trauma. His book, "The Human Magnet Syndrome: Why We Love People Who Hurt Us," has sold nearly 60,000 copies and is considered a staple in most codependency treatment and recovery circles. His second book, The Human Magnet Syndrome: The Codependent Narcissist Trap, is a complete rewrite of the first, adding an additional 125 pages that provide a more explicit rendering of The Human Magnet Syndrome, including new theories, explanations and concepts, many more case examples as well as personal stories. It includes information about Gaslighting and many more topics that were not covered in the first book. It also has info about Ross’s own codependency recovery. He is also an internationally renowned seminar leader, who has presented in 29 States/68 cities including Amsterdam and London. He's been regularly featured on national TV and radio and blogs for prominent online publications. Ross's Codependency Cure™ work reformulates, redefines, and ultimately renames "codependency" to "Self-Love Deficit Disorder™". His other original theories/concepts, which include The Relationship Compatibility Theory (originally the Continuum of Self Theory), Ten Stage Self Love Recovery Model, Observe Don't Absorb Technique, and many others, have reshaped what we know about trauma, codependency and narcissism (narcissistic abuse).
