When "Crazy" People Show Up

books leadership ministry Jan 16, 2019

Over the last decade or so, I have spent a lot of time talking with "crazy" people. I'm not referring to any mental illness diagnoses they may have - though that certainly might be a factor.

When I say "crazy", I mean irrational. People who, for a variety of possible reasons including diagnosable mental illness, are acting or speaking in a way that is completely irrational. 

What do you do when an irrational person comes into your office, expecting you to drop everything and meet their need or solve their problem?

Meet Mark Goulston. His book, Talking to "Crazy", is going to change your life! As a psychotherapist and psychiatrist, as well as trainer for FBI and police hostage-negotiation teams, Mark has seen a wide variety of "crazy" - otherwise normal people who are acting so irrationally that they can end up causing harm to themselves and others around them. 

I know you're going to be intrigued by this book and I can't wait to hear what you learned from it!
