Format: Paperback
My psychotherapist, a certified Transactional Analyst, did a great deal of training with Ms Schiff, working alongside her on the treatment of psychotic patients. He reports her methodology worked wonderfully and she got many people suffering from schizophrenia cured, including two of her adopted children.
She had a very humane approach called "reparenting" which was by no means purely verbal because, according to neuropsychology, folks suffering from certain mental disorders are in need of basic skin-to-skin-mother-to-child like affection, which has not been adecquately provided to them by first infancy time, so they get a chance to fulfill that blank. This, of course, is just a part of the whole therapy, which is described in more detail in the book.
Very useful at a time when, highly influenced by certain industries and commercial interests, psychiatrists and other professionals are more likely to say it has no cure.

Format: Paperback
Jaqui Schiff innovated an effective therapy that actually provided cure for what most of the medical/psychological establishment considers incurable. That alone would incite disparagement from commercial interests whose livelihood depends on treating and medicating, rather than addressing causality. I trained in the reparenting methods she innovated and can attest to their validity and effectiveness. What was her secret? she listened to what her clients were saying, responded to what was legitimately a cry for help and learned what they needed. I met and trained with Arron and found him to be not only healthier than most therapists, but quite intelligent, as well. To denegrate Schiff and her methods as cultish is pure prejudice, without any semblance of truthful information.

Format: Hardcover
This book was authored by a cult leader in the 70s who thought she was pioneering a new form of therapy to treat schizophrenic patients. The content of the book can be graphic, disturbing, and readers beware, these techniques are more harmful than helpful. Reparenting is practiced by some therapists today, but in different forms. If I had the option of 0 stars, that would be my rating.

Jaqui Schiff was a complete nut! My family attended "therapy scessions " at her cultish facility in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Her methods included beating the young people that came to her for help with mental illness. They were shut down when a young man who Jaqui thought was schitzofrenic was killed at their "therapy center" by being dunked, bound, into a barhtub of scalding water. This is all documented on the Internet with the name if the young man who died. They were charged with either murder or manslaughter.

I was never harmed physically, but the emotional scars are still with me 40 years later. I can still hear the screams of people being bound and beaten. They had already been run out of Virginia only to continue their rein of terror in California, ending with the death of an innocent young man who's parents trusted Jaqui Schiff.

I believe she is deceased now but I hate to think of any book royalties going to any Schiff family members who took part in the brutality that was "the Schiff Family"
