Product Reviews

18 Jun, 2017
Both a practical guide to assist those dealing with loved one's who suffer addiction (of any form - not only the chemical addictions of drugs & alcohol) but also a ground-breaking way of understanding the image/self set up in a person - the letting go of self. I find it extraordinary that this book isn't a 'must read' for students or practitioners of psychology, those working in the mental health field or those closely working with addicts. Understanding 'Image' or 'self' would cut through the many Band-Aid treatments being offered by so-called experts.
