FALLING INTO THE FIRE is her account of what it was like working within the world of psychiatry. She is open and honest about the struggles and achievements along the way, making this a very 'real' and humane book. Mental illness is so often feared, avoided or misunderstood but here, Montross tries to break some of these barriers down.
One idea I was particularly struck by was the notion of abiding with someone who is experiencing pain. As a counsellor, I come across clients who are in emotional pain, rather than physical pain, but the idea of abiding through this with that client is an interesting one.
I would certainly recommend this for anyone who works as a professional in any kind of health care setting - psychiatrists, doctors, social workers, counsellors etc should get a lot out of this book.
