The Need to be Needed
An honest and enjoyable trip through the life of a flawed, rebellious, outrageous, and insightful psychotherapist.
Uniquely written, it poetically ponders its own narrative with easy-to-read vignettes and reflections that will inform, stimulate, and not disappoint.
Julius Lanoil is a psychotherapist, consultant at Fountain House, and a certified medical rehabilitation director, whose poetically reflective writing style premieres a fresh new approach.
He is the co-author of Fountain House: Creating Community in Mental Health Practice, published by Columbia University Press, and has written many articles that can be found on his website, www. juliuslanoil.com. He has served as the assistant director of Fountain House and an assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry and director of psychiatric rehabilitation at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. While there he created The Club, a unique treatment model for people with serious mental illness, and SERV, a statewide New Jersey housing program. He is also a co-founder of the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association and the first co-editor of its journal.
