Crazy: Notes on and Off the Couch

Crazy: Notes on and Off the Couch Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An average day in the life of a psychologist is a frenetic one. A 9 a.m. appointment to help a woman manage a husband who wont take out the garbage (at least with his pants on) quickly shifts to an emotionally intense session with a convicted rapist at 10 a.m. After talking with

a child about his fears of school an hour later, the psychologist then meets with a therapist to deal with his own anxieties, followed by lunch with his socially-phobic colleague whos already had four martinis by 1 p.m. All this, and its

only Monday.

 

What most of us dont realize is that while mental health professionals are trying to help people resolve their problems, they often suffer from depression and anxiety, take antipsychotics, self-medicate with booze, and struggle in their own relationships. In other words, they can be just as “crazy” as their patients.

 
Crazy is the story of how one mental health professional deals with his own personal problems and those of the people he treats. Part exposé and part memoir, it reveals what therapists really think about their profession, their colleagues, their patients, and their own lives.
Ultimately, Dobrenskis riveting, sometimes humorous, and deeply insightful narrative brings us to one oddly comforting conclusion—namely, the therapists not-so-secret secret: Were all crazy.
