Product description

Review

Drawing on her own terrifying experiences to address the carefully constructed definitions and understandings of the disorder, [Lauveng] challenges some entrenched ideas about schizophrenia, especially the idea that she had to live with her condition for her entire life, and she deconstructs and examines in different combinations the ideas of how it affects different individuals. Emphasizing a personal approach to clients is not unique to Lauveng, but this chronicle of her specific experiences carries extra weight. --Kirkus Reviews

Book Description

A gripping memoir that challenges our perceptions and understanding of schizophrenia.
