We have now come to one of the most important topics of this book, namely treatment. I have organized this section around a different format, that is, the use of the first and second person singular and plural, the active voice, and posed questions and answers. My aim is practicality for the reader. I also hope to allay anxiety about asking for professional help, to demystify what therapy is all about, and to combat the cynicism that some doctors and/or their spouses harbor toward psychiatric treatment.
