What is a Dysfunctional Relationship?


Learn how to be in a healthy relationship.

Dysfunctional relationships, toxic family relationships, and relationships with codependency problems … these descriptions are in the media on a regular basis. Most of the time the stories or news articles are about the relationships but not about what to do if you find yourself in one. This white paper provides a brief overview of different terms describing these types of relationships and what they mean, and compares the difference between these types of relationships and healthy ones.
