I'm a therapist, and I work with the most dangerous patients. I've seen it all... A boy who planned to be the next school shooter. A patient with OCD whose loved ones really did suffer every time he missed a ritual. A choir boy who claimed he was being molested -- not by a priest -- but by God Himself.

    There just are no words to convey the depth of my confusion relative to the stellar ratings on this book. The premise is that Dr. Harper has compiled files of six “broken” patients he has treated—and he is allowing readers a peek at what’s inside. The files run the gamut from disturbing to creepy to flat out ridiculous. I expected to see traditional files, with the doodles and notes that Harper mentions at the start, but they were nonexistent. Perhaps it all circles back to formatting issues wit There just are no words to convey the depth of my confusion relative to the stellar ratings on this book.

The files run the gamut from disturbing to creepy to flat out ridiculous. I expected to see traditional files, with the doodles and notes that Harper mentions at the start, but they were nonexistent. Perhaps it all circles back to formatting issues with the Kindle, but this book is simply a series of six first person narratives, with a paragraph or two added to the end of each as semi-footnotes. Every “file” is almost a short story, without the interesting “stuff”, like, you know, a purpose or even a plot. What they also have in common, besides being files of Harper’s patients, is that the stories all demonstrate Harper’s inadequacies as a therapist. In every single case he also documents his own behaviors, and they, without exception, prove to be unethical, unprofessional and possible examples of malpractice. I didn’t find Harper’s stories to be necessarily “bad”, nor were they entertaining or even funny. I’m not sure what Harper WANTED this to be, as his genre-confusion was evident in the inclusion of a school shooting at the beginning bookended by attempts at humor and social satire that falls flat. I am left shaking my head and hoping those with more insight can share the redeeming qualities I so obviously missed. Two stars because at least he wrote in complete sentences.

    I nearly abandonned this knock-off creepypasta several times. Not only is the writing childish and better suited for a reddit forum, but the content was completely ridiculous. Each "patient file" is filled with unethical, illegal, and irrational actions and crappy dialogue.

    Warning: This Book Is Fiction I bought this ebook hoping for interesting files from a therapist’s casebook. Nope. It’s an amateurish novel that grows less believable with every page.

    I thought it was pretty good... The first half being better than the second in my opinion just because it seemed more realistic Overall though an entertaining breezy read if you like psych horror, just be mindful it is a work of fiction and reads as such

    So here’s the thing: I am absolutely not at all interested in horror, especially not things like psychological horrors/thrillers. But I do have a Reddit and I am subscribed to r/nosleep, which previously I hadn’t read much of at all. Then a couple months ago, I saw a post titled “I’m a therapist, and my patient is going to be the next school shooter.” In a few paragraphs, I was hooked.

Even if you don’t have money to buy the actual book, the stories were all posted originally on reddit. Read them now, thank me later.

    “Jesus Christ. I sounded like a fucking middle schooler.” You sounded like a middle schooler, not just in that God-awful section, but as well as throughout the entire book. I’m pretty sure I have read fanfiction more believable than this book. I’m really bummed because I bought this book believing it to be true stories told from an actual therapist and I am now thoroughly disappointed to find out that I had been poorly misled. And the worst part is that it wasn’t even interesting enough to keep “Jesus Christ.

Before you write a book and try to pass it off as “real” I would suggest doing some research, maybe attending a real therapy session, or something to make it at least somewhat believable.

    Plenty of over-the-top contrivances but a real pageturner. I love true case files books so this fictional one kept me intrigued. Blew through it in a couple of days.

    Gosh, I cautiously perused the reddit site with the published stories thinking that these were legit composite accounts of therapy sessions. Although the title was a red flag of poor judgement/confidentiality by a licensed therapist. Then it just got way too ridiculous and fictional.

So titling the book “I’m a therapist, ....” was quite deceiving... and certainly is a violation of all kinds of privacy laws and ethics and common sense as a therapist plus lots of poor judgement in handling some very difficult situations (which do come up in real life) with could certainly cause this lose his ability to practice...or get him Arrested! So maybe it was my oversight not to realize from the start that this was fiction. And if I’m wrong about that —- and this person is really a therapist! Yikes!

    This book: 1.) Was unbelievable and not in a good way. It was literally hard to believe. 2.) It did not keep me up at night. 3.) Was written from the perspective of the world’s worst therapist. I gave it 3 stars because it wasn’t hard to read, it was short and I enjoyed the random psych info. It was interesting enough to read its entirety. However, it wasn’t interesting enough to make me want to read the prison case files that are coming out next. Full review at: https://barefootmamalivin.wordpress This book: 1.)

What was his timeframe of being in the stories? And if the (view spoiler)[ police officer was married to one of the sisters, why did they need a mark? They were already being loved. Maybe I thought too hard about it (hide spoiler)]

A pedo-ring conspiracy theorist who was actually onto something. And how could I ever forget, Patient #220..." This book is a collection of 6 disturbing patient stories narrated by the therapist himself. Although it's not based on a true story, you start to believe that it is. I even did a quick Google search for the author, Dr. Harper, and that's where I found that he initially posted each individual story on a Reddit forum before publishing this book. You can read them for free at www.drharpertherapy.com The author starts off by saying the patient files are not in chronological order but that they're in the order as we should read them. I read reviews where some people didn't like that idea but I didn't have a problem with it and thought it made sense as I read on. My only complaint was that I thought the therapist was a little too involved with his patients and that it seemed unrealistic to me but I still think it made for a really entertaining, silly/goofy and twisted story.

    It should be self-evident, but apparently some people have mistaken this for nonfiction. It is fiction, and not very good fiction at that. Typical amateurish Reddit writing. The author obviously spends most of his/her time on the internet, looking up various psychological conditions. Whoever it is can't have been to any therapy sessions, because every single "session" in the book is a total joke.

The only reason I read the whole thing is it's only about 150 pages so it took just a couple of hours, in between watching episodes of my current binge watch on Netflix. If you are really, really bored and you don't have any other books to read and you can't find a good movie on Netflix, this book may give you a few laughs. Otherwise, my advice would be to skip it.

    Well. That book sucked. I thought the title was intriguing, and my team needed an I book, so off I went! It would have been very interesting if it was actual case files, or at least somewhat fictionalized case files.

    Amazing stories! These are fantastic stories that can be enjoyed individually for a quick read or as chapters of a book. Either way, it will be hard to put down. Anyone who is a fan of mystery and suspense (and a good bit of humor) will absolutely love this book. It constantly kept me guessing and on the edge of my seat.

    I honestly don’t know what to say about this book. This therapist obviously oversteps his bounds. A lot. The ending got crazy in my opinion, but I enjoyed how everything came together at the end. As a psychology major, I liked how mental issues were discussed. Always interesting to me. I’m interested to read ‘Patient Files from Prison’ now.
