"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, 6 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 readers quickly and effectively use Dr. Amador's method for helping someone accept treatment. Dr. Amador is a clinical psychologist and is currently a Visiting Professor of Psychology at the State University of New York, over two decades he also served as a Professor of Psychiatry and Clinical Psychology at Columbia University and Professor of Psychology at New York University. Dr. Amador has published over 100 peer-reviewed scientific papers and he was co-chair of the last text revision of the Schizophrenia and related disorders section of the DSM IV-TR (often referred to as the Psychiatrists Bible). He is the Founder of the LEAP Institute. LEAP (Listen-Empathize-Agree-Partner) teaches the importance of strong relationships in everything from treating illness, to healthy couples, to effective business practices"--Provided by publisher.
