A Must for anyone setting up or running a Psychiatric Residential Unit Nov. 30 2013
By Graham Hocking - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Brilliant book for anyone who is working in a residential unit or wants to set one up. Principles apply more generally on how to treat people and consider and address their vulnerabilities There have been some controversy surrounding Bettleheim but I can't fault his sensitivity expressed in this book.

Hypocrisy Dec 4 2004
By Monica Shouts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book of Bettelheim's makes me particularly mad because as a teenager I read it to see if I wanted to attend that place. And it sounded so lovely that I thought, oh this is the place for me to get better.

Too bad, Betttelheim didn't mention his use of physical abuse and shaming. Too bad, he didn't mention that the O.S. was really an abusive cult and that his successor was completely brainwashed by him.
