“I Am Not Sick I Don’t Need Help!” book is a must-read book for everyone who meets people with mental health problems anytime, anywhere.

Psychiatric patients receiving various medicines to alleviate their problems or illnesses are often refusing this help. Of course, this causes various complications and sometimes even more outbreaks. Xavier Amador is a clinical psychologist living in the United States and treating people with mental illness as a psychotherapist. In this book, he tries to explain the mechanisms by which a psychotherapist can present to the patient their illness.

He shows how to represent to patients the importance of disciplined treatment for its long-term benefit (which is also the starting point of this book). In doing so, it derives from its own method, called LEAP, which means listening-empathy-agreeing-companionship, which at the same time mean stages in the softening of the patient-doctor relationship.

I Am Not Sick I Don’t Need Help-Book Review

The book is a comprehensive guide to the most challenging phase in the treatment of mental illness (psychosis). How to convince a patient or our neighbor that he or she will be treated because he/she is usually unaware of the seriousness of his/her health condition. The book is based on the findings of world-renowned clinical psychologist Xavier Amador, a professor at Columbia University and chair of the LEAP Institute. With an empathetic style of writing, it is appropriate for both professional health care professionals from nursing staff to therapists, as well as humanitarian volunteers. In particular, it will be welcomed to many people (loved ones) who live with the psychotic person either at home or in the neighborhood or at work. Amador wrote the book from personal experience with his brother Henry. Thus, an effective method was created based on listening, compassion, finding elements of the agreement, and companionship with a person with psychosis.

»Amador’s book “I’m not sick, I don’t need help!” it fills a really huge void in the psychiatric profession … “wrote E. Fuller Torrey, an American psychiatrist, and schizophrenia researcher,” on the first edition of the book. After ten years, this still holds true.

His Own Experience With the Brother Henry

The idea to explore a weak insight into his own illness came from Amador in the time when he was a student, and he tried to convince his brother Henry that he is ill. Namely, schizophrenia suddenly appeared in his brother. But of course, his brother refused this fact. Amador wanted to persuade him to accept the medicines he offered. Henry didn’t even believe he was sick. Tens of millions of people with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder worldwide think the same.
