“This book ﬁlls a tremendous void…” wrote E. Fuller Torrey, M.D., about the ﬁrst edition of I AM NOT SICK, I Don’t Need Help! Twenty years later, it still does.
Dr. Amador’s research on poor insight was inspired by his success helping his brother Henry, who developed schizophrenia, accept treatment. Like tens of millions of others diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar and substance abuse disorders, Henry did not believe he was ill.
I AM NOT SICK, I Don’t Need Help! is not just a reference for mental health and criminal justice professionals. It is a must-read, step-by-step guide for family members whose loved ones have been devastated by mental illness.
Learn as have millions of others worldwide…to LEAP®— Listen, Empathize, Agree, and Partner—to help your patients, loved ones, and others accept treatment.
They happen everyday—those circular “I’m right, you’re wrong!” arguments. At home, at work, or on the street, people lock horns about all kinds of things. These situations frustrate both parties, stall progress, and hurt relationships. But they don’t have to. In his latest and most detailed book on LEAP (the Listen-Empathize-Agree-Partner method first developed to convince people in denial to accept help), Dr. Amador shows you how to stop arguing, start listening and persuade your adversary—and that is what even loved one’s become during disagreements about who’s right and who’s wrong—to give you what you need.
