In the early 2000s, I worked in community mental health in Portland, Oregon. I had the privilege of working with this amazing psychiatrist, Dr. Phil Shapiro, on an Assertive Community Treatment team. You can read an article about him here (on his website) or here (an article from the Oregonian, 2010).
At the time, he was working on this book called Healing Power: Ten Steps to Pain Management and Spiritual Evolution. He had groups that he did with clients in both community mental health and in the regular community (I attended!), all based on the program he outlined in his book.
He recently shared that his book and the subsequent workbook he published, are available for FREE from his new website. The books are available for download in text or audio format. What a gift! Please check out his new website to take a look and download these gems.
Thank you Dr. Shapiro, for your years of service and for making this work available to everyone!
