This new edition provides information on 1,100 national, international, model, and online "self-help" support groups for most any illness, disability, addiction, bereavement situation, parenting concern, caregiver, abuse, or other stressful life situation. Includes chapters on: how to start a community mutual aid self-help group; finding and forming online groups; local self-help group clearinghouses worldwide; understanding the value and dynamics of groups; and a review of empirical research studies done of self-help groups (compiled by Drs. Kyrouz, Humphreys & Loomis at Stanford School of Medicine), and a listing of over 300 additional national toll-free specialty helplines. Has both a keyword index, and a separate index for group names. The Foreword was written by the late Dr. Alfred Katz, U.C.L.A. departments of Medicine, Public Health, and Social Welfare, and the Introduction by Dr. Phyllis Silverman, Dept. of Psychiatry, Harvard University.
