In 1982 she began her career as a social worker and case manager of a program in Minneapolis for those with chronic and persistent mental illness. While in graduate school at the University of Minnesota at Duluth, she designed and authored The Eight Stage Healing Process for Families and Friends of the Mentally Ill. This book was published by Doubleday in 1989 and Julie toured the United States, Canada, and Australia teaching the eight stages and offering instructions on how to set up a healthy self-help group. She founded the National Siblings Network in the United States through NAMI. Australia adopted her eight-stage protocol, incorporating it into their primary national program for families of the mentally ill. Julie is the author of nine books, two for adults and seven for youth. She is presently finishing up her first YA fiction. Julie has a bimonthly newsletter: Monday Musings for Writers & Spiritual Pilgrims, offering readers a means for spiritual inquiry through journaling and meditation.

Format: Paperback
Hidden Victims, Hidden Healers is an excellent resource book for family and friends of people who are living with some form of mental or emotional disorder. Written in a no-nonsense, accessible style, and filled with true-life stories of others in this position, Hidden Victims, Hidden Healers offers the reader options without giving advice, lets the reader know that they are not alone in their difficulty, and suggests additional resources for both the reader and their loved one. Perhaps best of all is the permission which Ms. Johnson gives the reader to live their own life-being compassionate to a loved one does not mean sacrificing your own right to a happy and fulfilling life. As a fellow professional, as well as one who has herself been in this dilemma, I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

Format: Paperback
When I was beginning to try to write about my own family's experience, I stumbled across a reference to this book -- which was then out of print. I was lucky enough to find a copy and found it an invaluable resource in understanding not only the schizophrenia in my family but also the family dynamics that aggravated the effect of the disease. I am so thrilled that this is back in print -- it's a must-have for family members!

Format: Paperback
I've conducted a support group two times through this book and it's excellent. Johnson concentrates on what you can do for yourself, how you can grow into a deeper person. Help your mentally ill relative or friend by becoming stronger yourself. Her eight stages begin with Awareness of yourself and validation of your feelings and go on from there to tackle guilt, forgiveness, and growth among other areas. Wonderul and extremely helpful. Because of this book I can say I have grown through this experience

I found this book to be very helpful to me. It has given me so much info to help me see my life with mentally ill spouse. I have learned the "rules" of dealing with a mentally ill person. I would recommend this to anyone who is searching for help on dealing with this issue.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This little book has been very helpful in showing the difference
between caregiving and caretaking, the power of our thoughts and the emotions behind what we do that motivate us to caretake.
It helps one to look at their life and see how much time is invested in the caretaking role whilst not looking after the self in the process, with the belief that their loved one needs rescuing.
It shows that carers are experts in self neglect but this need not be so. This book takes you through an eight step program to healing oneself with guidelines to follow, where your health and happiness becomes a priority without the guilt and have both parties benefit. This is a great read for any carer feeling the weight on their shoulders,where they also learn how to be happy and emotionally strong whilst caregiving. This is a must read.
