“Welcome to my country: A Therapist Memoir Of Madness”

I found this book Intriguing. Lauren Slater  a young therapist tells of her struggles to relate to her patients.She begins  working with a group of schizophrenics finding the traditional forms of therapy fruitless.She begins exploring some new ways of relating to her clients that bring remarkable results. This was not an easy read for me because of the honest emotions she revealed of herself and her patients.  The book did reinforce the idea that we need to continue to look for new ways of connecting with people who society sees as “broken” or having no hope of recovery.Many times it is our lack of imagination that stops us from connecting with others who see the world in a different way than we do
