Thank you Fay and John. I will eagerly await the 2nd edition Fay, and rest
assured that I am not a believer in 'cookbook' approaches. What really
attracts me to PCP is its recognition (perhaps its cornerstone) of
uniqueness of every individual human being and the need in therapy to make a
connection to that individual. Although I'm a complete novice to PCP I have
been involved in 'Recovery' focused approaches to mental health delivery for
some years. I wrote a little article recently comparing PCP with the
concepts of 'Recovery from Mental Illness' as articulated by consumers
prominant in the international consumer movement and professionals involved
in 'Recovery' such as William Anthony and LeRoy Spaniol from the Centre for
Psychiatric Rehabilitation, Boston University. The two marry very well

Thanks again
