In America today there are thousands of persons who are able to withstand the pressures and frustrations of modern life because of a discipline they learned through a unique organization - Recovery, Inc. What is especially remarkable is that many of these persons were formerly in such chronic states of mental disorder that they required institutional care or has shut themselves off from the outside world in there own households. Their return to stable health has left many of them particularly indebted to Dr. Abraham A. Low, whose pioneer work with mental patients at the Psychiatric Institute of the University of Illinois resulted in the revolutionary methods that undergirds their present state of good mental and emotional health. In "My Dear Ones", Neil and Margaret Rau, who trained to become authorized group leaders in Recovery, Inc., in order to write understandably about it, tell the engrossing story of Dr. Low - his life, his work, his enduring legacy. It is also a love story, revealing the strong bond of compassion between this devoted psychiatrist and his patients, a band of souls for whom often there seemed no hope. This biography traces Dr. Low's life from its humble European beginnings to his death in America as a venerated "healer" to thousands. The turbulent period when his methods was under attack from within the profession is vividly recreated here, as are his triumphs and moments of personal joy and fulfillment. Intimate detail abounds because the authors have interviewed numerous relatives, friends and patients of Dr. Low.
