Not a quick read and put it down kind of book. More read here, read there, think about it, try it out, read some more kind of book.
In particular I like that Amador gives detailed examples of a variety of situations where the techniques are actually used, such as a couple discussing whether to move the family for a job opportunity, grown sisters negotiating over when to schedule a family reunion, and handling conflict on the phone with a hospital nurse who cites privacy laws in refusing to provide critical medical info about the author's mother. These examples help me project the LEAP technique into my own life.
Amador's friendly and clear writing style is in large part what makes this book so effective and so accessible.
Great reading for anyone who is confronting impasses, or even dealing with love ones with mental illness.
It is written by a psychologist who has personal experience in the matter; having dealt with a brother so afflicted for 25 years. The book describes a method for reaching out to the patient, and slowly convincing him or her to stick with the medication, and even, over time, develop increasing insight and awareness as to their own condition.
If what you have just read makes sense to you, this book is a must-read. It will improve the situation, or even help you to understand one that has already passed. This is a very sad and difficult illness to deal with, for in most cases the person so afflicted has no idea whatsoever that anything is wrong with them. I guarantee that this book will help.
