5.0 von 5 Sternen A Great Book, 5. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde
The book was fasinating reading about the dynamics between a therapist (with problems )trying to help her patients with similar difficulties. This set-up distinguishes Welcome to My Country from other, author-centered-self indulgent books (like PROZAC NATION). I really felt like I could relate to this author. She was so successful in her career yet she simply had a few things missing in her life (I'll leave those to you to figure out). I have read many books about women with mental problems but this is one of my favorites. It is simpler than PROZAC NATION but I think just as effective in terms of remembering characters and plot several months after you finish the book. The characters are not superficial. Not everybody would like this book. Rather, it is for the reader who likes deep literature and is not afraid of reading about all kinds of emotional problams. Moreover, much of Lauren's life revolves around pychology, so one should not read this book unless they love that topic, or are in need of an emotional story. I highly recommend this to anyone in the mental health or helping professions.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bravely human and poetic prose., 5. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Welcome to My Country (Hörkassette)
Welcome to My Country's deeply poetic and compassionate essays on Lauren Slater's early work as a psychologist with very ill patients closely following her own very difficult personal passage thru emotional illness and hospitalization as a teenager and young adult blew a hole in my heart. It is brilliant, brilliant writing, impossible to put down. I read the last chapter "The Three Spheres" first (they are freestanding chapters) as part of an anthology of essays on Surviving Crisis. Be prepared to marvel and to weep.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best Psychology Book I've Read, 20. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This book is one of the best books on mental health problems I have ever read. Each chapter introduces and describes a different type of mental illness (depression, personality disorder, etc.) through anecdotes from the author's clients and treatment situations. The author has a beautiful writing style, and the descriptions of the clients and their problems make them understandable not just intellectually but emotionally by the reader in a way that few books about mental health problems ever do, as few authors write this well or can empathize with the patients as Ms. Slater does. One can actually understand and feel what the patient does; this is not just a dry clinical book, which is frequently the case with topics such as this. Aside from understanding and feeling with the patients, it also helps one appreciate life and the human mind and soul better. I wish the author had written more books; I only hope she does in the future, as I will read them all.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Easy, Enjoyable Read, 19. November 1997
Slater recalls her treatment of some of her most memorable clients. From her work at a group home for chronic schizophrenic males to an offensive, aggressive and violent man diagnosed with antisocial personality disorder, Slater discusses how she reached out to these clients and tried to create a positive change in their lives. When she is asked to counsel a girl at the same psychiatric hospital where Slater was once a patient herself, memories come flooding back, along with the fear that she will be recognized and her career will be ruined. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is interested in psychology, mental disorders or the therapy process.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A poetic journey to the heart of mental illness and healing, 1. Juni 1998
Von Ein Kunde
This book is a gem of beautiful writing. As a student of psychology I seldom get to read a book of such sensitivity about the difficult subject of chronic mental illness. Slater elevates her subject to the spiritual realm simply through the love she obviously brings to doing therapy. I'd read anything written by this author - her style is evocative, surprising and lavishly imaginative. Lauren Slater is a unique voice in the field of psychology.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Interested in mental health? Read this book!, 17. März 1997
Von Ein Kunde
A wonderful book of real-life, colorful experiences of a psychologist and the schizophrenic men and other patients with whom she has works. The author shows that her patients are often insightful, not unlike herself, sometimes enviable and sometimes tragic. Her prose is equally engaging One of my favorite books in a long time that I think is a must-read for everyone interested in the mental health profession, and a great read for everyone else

5.0 von 5 Sternen An amazing book rich in thought, 8. Januar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Welcome to My Country (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I loved this book. I read it a while ago and just read her new book, Prozac Diary. After Prozac Diary, my love for Lauren Slater's writing was renewed and I went back and re-read Welcome to My Country. I love her honesty, her way of dealing with her patients, and her thoughts on them. She writes in a poetic like manner which makes her words even more enriched. I will always look forward to reading more books by Lauren Slater.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Touching stories from a therapist who does her utmost, 16. Juni 2003
One would like that every mentally ill or said to be so could find a therapist like her!
Lauren Slater's own experience seems to give her specific skills to understand and love those who so badly need help and respect.

5.0 von 5 Sternen beautifully written, 12. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
This book takes you inside therapy from a therapist's point of view, yet we also learn the therapist was once a patient herself. It will make you laugh and cry, and you won't easily forget it.
