Accompanied Selfrehabilitation

Buy at:


"“Every once in a great while, there arises a young psychiatrist with entirely new rehabilitation ideas for helping patients retrieve their lives from psychosis. Usually such ideas initially elicit significant negative reactions from peers, but a handful of sturdy physicians have continued on to show the world that something different is possible—including George Brooks of the United States, E. E. Antinnen of Finland, and Franco Basaglia of Italy. Now we have to add to this list of illustrious doctors the name of Alberto Fergusson of Colombia”. Extract of the “Foreword”) Prof. Courtenay M. Harding"
