About this book
This book is the first to bring together the innovations gained from positive psychology, positive psychotherapy, and positive psychiatry in one volume that will serve as an excellent resource for medical and mental health professionals looking to reap the benefits gained by the studies and experiences in these areas. Currently, the majority of texts that are available are targeting psychologists and researchers, whereas this book seeks to use positive mental health as the foundation on which the clinical applications are built. Written by 49 experts in psychiatry, psychotherapy, and psychology, from 13 countries representing 5 continents, this book is designed to take an accessible approach that leaves the reader with a clear understanding of the epidemiology, development, and clinical applications for modern practice. Chapters include discourse on positive interventions across the lifespan and psychiatric and psychosomatic disorders, including depression, psychosis, anxiety disorders, and substance use disorders. The text also covers special topics such as care of transcultural considerations, special psychotherapeutic settings, and hot topics.
Positive Psychiatry, Psychotherapy and Psychology is a valuable resource for psychiatrists, psychologists, psychotherapists, social workers, and all other mental health professionals working with patients who may benefit from this approach.
