Editorial Reviews

The Courage To Lead: Start Your Own Support Group is a complete "how to" manual for creating small groups that will prove invaluable supplements to hospital regimens, formal therapy, medical or pharmaceutical treatments for persons striving against addiction or to overcome mental illnesses. Hannah Carlson ably covers all aspects of forming, organizing, publicizing, and leading a group; how to get started with discussion subjects, study materials, speakers; shares ten characteristics of an effective group, as well as a Twelve Step and other programs; using the telephone and on-line support; and a "trouble-shooters" guide. Also very highly recommended self-help titles by Carlson include Living With Disabilities: 6-Volume Compendium (1884158153, $59.70); Where's Your Head?: Psychology For Teenagers (1884158196, $14.95); and Girls Are Equal Too: The Teenage Girls How-To-Survive Book (1884158188, $14.95).
