We all long to live a fulfilled and happy life - a life that offers us love and opportunity, independence and hope. Sadly, for many people struggling with mental health problems such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders and addiction, recovery and a future full of potential may seem to be unachievable goals. In The Life Well Lived Professor Jim Lucey focuses on how a range of contemporary therapies can provide pathways to recovery. Through insightful case histories, he also explores issues such as stigma and other barriers to recovery, the true meaning of wellness, and how the rediscovery of a life of independence and social connection is not only possible but entirely achievable. Positive and optimistic, The Life Well Lived shines a light into the psychotherapeutic world - a world which is so often feared and misunderstood.
