A practical guide to a positive psychiatry of the future!

A highly practical book for all mental health professionals wanting to know how to apply positive psychiatry into their daily work. Positive psychiatry is the science and practice of psychiatry and clinical psychology that seeks to understand and promote well-being among people who have or are at high risk of developing mental illnesses. In this new approach, the person takes center stage, not the disease, and the focus is not only on repairing the worst, but also on creating the best in our patients.

The authors from the fields of medicine and clinical psychology present over 40 applications and many cases and stories to illustrate the four pillars of positive psychiatry: positive psychology, solution-focused brief therapy, the recovery-oriented approach, and non-specific factors. This book shows how mental health professionals can significantly increase patient collaboration to co-create preferred outcomes through discovering possibilities, and competences and through building hope, optimism, and gratitude.

Essential reading for psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, other professionals working in the field of mental health care as well as students who want to take a positive focus to make psychiatry faster, lighter, and yes, more fun. We have high hopes that positive psychiatry will become a firm part of the psychiatry of the future.
