This book outlines a different and seemingly more effective approach to treatment of mental illness. You will better learn the thoughts of the person whom you are trying to help (tormenting) and learn why the traditional approach is futile. Then Dr. Amadaor teaches you how to make his whole program work for you and your loved ones so you can pick up the pieces and move on with your lives. By focusing on common goals and listening reflectively (as opposed to reactively) you can start to put the pieces of your lives back together again. These are principles founded in emotional intelligence and winning other people over to your way of thinking. When you've tried everything else, try this!

As an aunty living with and looking after a 22-year old niece with bipolar disorder, I find this book to be a MUST READ/LISTEN for anyone who has a family member or friend wth schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.
All of the things you think you know about communicating DO NOT APPLY and you will frustrate yourself (and damage your relationship with your loved one) if you don't take the time to arm yourself with the proper tools. This book offers those very tools. I am so excited to begin having these conversations with my niece. That's something I haven't quite felt since she got sick and we went down this rabbit hole...
