The Shrink’s Links: Terry

Bringing you the best of mental health every week.

You may think you know George McGovern.

Maybe not, maybe you’re too young to know the Democratic presidential nominee who challenged Nixon in 1972 and lost abysmally. Politically, he was my generation’s Bernie Sanders.

Long after his presidential bid, he wrote a book, Terry: My Daughter’s Life-and-Death Struggle with Alcoholism .

She lost, too.

You can read it for the riveting, tragic story.

If you have ever questioned the standard, tough love, let them hit bottom approach, you can read it for that. He questions that, too.

I also have another self help book, Constructive Conflict: Building Something Good Out of All Those Arguments. I’ve also published two novels, a satire of the mental health field: Fate’s Janitors: Mopping Up Madness at a Mental Health Clinic, and Intersections , which takes readers on a road trip with a suicidal therapist.
