I found this book very helpful when writing my final paper in my group therapy class. Dr. Yalom spoke about his experiences when he worked and visited a psychiatrict hospital. Reading from his experiences will help me one day when I am able to work in a similar environment as well. Dr. Yalom also spoke about how patients are able to pick up on things even if they are in a psychotic state. For example, when staff members are not getting along or in a group setting (the two co-leaders) are not getting along.
