Dr. Amador's research on poor insight was inspired by his attempts to help his brother Henry, who developed schizophrenia, accept treatment. Like tens of millions of others diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, Henry did not believe he was ill. In this latest edition, six new chapters have been added, new research on anosognosia (lack of insight) is presented and new advice, relying on lessons learned from 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 or law enforcement professionals. It is a must-have guide for family members whose loved ones are battling mental illness. Listen and learn as have hundreds of thousands of others...to LEAP - listen, empathize, agree, and partner - and help your patients and loved ones accept the treatment they need.
