Improving Mental Health: Four Secrets in Plain Sight

The Four Secrets aren’t really secrets, but important ideas that need to be examined Four Secretsfurther.  They are:
1. Behavior serves a purpose.
2. The Power of Attachment
3. As a Rule, Less is More
4. Chronic Stress is the Enemy
Dr. Sederer expands on each of these four important points in such a way that other health practitioners or even laypersons can understand.
This book would be useful for anyone caring for someone with mental health issues whether in a professional capacity or in a personal or family relationship.  It may even help those who are suffering themselves.  He breaks things down in easily understandable terms and helps get to the bottom of symptoms rather than just throwing a quick fix at the problem.
If you are looking to improve the care you are giving or you or a loved one are receiving, I would absolutely recommend this book.
