Questo lavoro si propone di presentare l’attuale stato dell’arte sul tema della dipendenza affettiva, una forma di amore ossessivo ed esasperato nei confronti del proprio partner, che nuoce al benessere della persona. Nella prima parte ven-gono trattate la definizione, la fenomenologia e la prevalenza di questa condizio-ne. Vengono inoltre esposte le principali teorie riguardanti l’inquadramento noso-grafico del problema e le considerazioni diagnostiche per differenziarlo da patolo-gie simili. La seconda parte dell’articolo riporta invece le varie ipotesi sull’eziologia della dipendenza affettiva, le principali misure per il suo assessment e i trattamenti che ad oggi sono stati proposti. Nel complesso si evidenzia che, sebbene si discuta da tempo di dipendenza affettiva, tuttora la letteratura a riguardo risulta fram-mentaria e poco chiara, il che è da considerarsi, a detta degli autori, come il princi-pale limite da superare per poter aiutare efficacemente chi soffre di tale condizio-ne.


Keywords: dipendenza affettiva, dipendenza comportamentale, nuove dipen-denze, ossessione romantica, relazioni sentimentali, attaccamento.
