Publisher's summary

Dr. Amador's research on poor insight was inspired by his success helping his brother Henry, who had schizophrenia, accept treatment. Like tens of millions of others diagnosed with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and addictions, Henry did not believe he was ill.

In this latest edition, all chapters have been updated with new research on anosognosia (lack of insight) and much more detail on LEAP. Listeners will find expanded guidance on how to learn and use LEAP. New advice, relying on lessons learned from tens of thousands of LEAP seminar participants, is given to help listeners quickly and effectively use Dr. Amador's method for helping someone accept treatment.

I Am Not Sick, I Don't Need Help! is not just a reference for mental health practitioners and criminal justice professionals. It is a must-listen to guide for family members whose loved ones are battling mental illness and addictions. Listen, and learn as have hundreds of thousands of LEAP—listen, empathize, agree, and partner—and help your patients and loved ones accept the treatment they need.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
