She is petite and five feet tall, but she works with murderers, con men, drug addicts, and prostitutes. How can this be?
Find out in The Rule Breakers, the true life story of Peri B. Mann, a petite female social worker, untrained to deal with violent and often volatile patients, who chooses to work with male psychiatric patients, drug addicts, and criminals.
In her one-of-a-kind memoir, the author shares her personal history growing up on the streets of Brooklyn, and how it equipped her with skills to manage unexpected crises both at home and at work. Drawing on early life lessons, she recounts how she helps save a colleague taken hostage by an angry mob of patients, survives having a knife put to her throat during a counseling session, and finds a creative way to evade a threat against her life made by a low-level cartel member.
Her ability to deftly navigate these situations and other challenges by creatively thinking outside the box and going beyond the traditional rules for social workers and counselors is the essence of this impactful memoir.
