As a psychotherapist I endorse this book wholeheartedly. In my practice I have often lamented that therapists do a great job of educating the client or patient on their illness, but the families often get overlooked. The family might receive some education about the patient’s illness and will be encouraged to be helpful and understanding, but how it is affecting them is often overlooked and it is common for the family members to suffer secondary symptoms and caregiver burnout. It is clear that the author did her research well. She addressed this issue very well. The knowledge, wisdom, and strength exude from the pages and the personality of the author is evident and warming to the heart.
