Advert Description

Oxfam Shop Cardiff Dr. Low's book consists of a preface, a "concise outline of recovery self-help techniques," and four parts covering panel discussions by patients with summations by the author, methods of "sabotage" and group psychotherapy interviews.

The two cardinal rules of that teaching are "authority" and "sabotage."

The terminology employed in this therapeutic effort is referred to as "the recovery language" and the organization as Recovery, See Oxfam website for delivery information
