My friend and I discovered Daniel Mackler when we were researching Alice’s Miller’s work. Monica from Beyond Meds shares his documentary, Healing Homes,
Some quotes from the video:
“You have to have love to help people. If you do not have love, you cannot help people.”
“If you choose to be [emotionally] dead, you can live a comfortable life.”
“If we show who we are: we cry, we laugh, we get angry, the people who come here to us, they feel it’s normal to show themselves”
Please also check out Mackler’s full video’s Open Dialogue and Take These Broken Wings and check out Monica’s other articles from Daniel Mackler on her blog.
Thanks so much Monica!
All Daniel Mackler’s films are now available for free viewing on youtube. This is the last one. I’ve posted all of them now. I highly recommend them all.
COMPLETE DOCUMENTARY FILM. “Healing Homes,” recovery from psychosis without medication. An in-depth exploration of the Family Care Foundation, one of the best psychosis-oriented programs in the world, a Swedish organization which places people failed by traditional psychiatry in families, many of whom are farm families, as a start to a whole new life. Interviews with clinicians, clients, and host families.
See Daniel’s other two films as well:
OPEN DIALOGUE: the complete film now online for viewing (alternative healing for psychosis) — and links to more information about this wonderful healing modality.
