Emotional Well-being and Mental Health : a thought provoking discussion of the concepts of health, happiness and wellbeing and their interconnected meanings. Digby presents a fascinating appraisal of these subjective and highly contested terms from different theoretical perspectives, showing how each discipline has attempted to understand and explain their relevance to the human experience.
The book is a wide ranging, complex and erudite examination of the elements that make up emotional wellbeing – a condition that Tantam considers must integrate both health and happiness. The book summarises the findings of philosophers, health economists and health workers, positive psychologists,politicians, faith leaders and psychotherapists, enabling us to compare and contrast what they consider to be emotional wellbeing.
This book draws on a wide range of perspectives to provide a comprehensive and illuminating discussion relating to the concepts and experience of happiness, emotional wellbeing and mental health... The author provides some thought provoking and engaging insights and the breadth of knowledge he brings to his discussion is impressive.
The book speaks to current issues in mental health from diverse perspectives. The language is simply.
This book provides a thorough insight into different theoretical perspectives of well-being and is also inclusive of relevant research data. Although it is a guide for counsellors and psychotherapists it would also be relevant to other professionals.
support module text / background reading
A good piece of literature to use in the study of psychotherapy and counselling.
Good reference material well laid out in an easy clear and concise manner.
This book can be used for students completing a childhood studies degree and also a mental health degree.
Whilst I would use this as a supplementary text, this book offered an interesting insight into the topic- as a guide there was transferable information to other professions.
This book was more geared towards the health profession and could not be used for counselors within a classroom / school environment. I was expecting practical strategies that could be used to support pastoral guidance counselors in delivering expert care. This did give a good overview of emotional well being.
Very useful and informative book for all training levels.
very comprehensive account, very interesting. However the font size is very small
A very good book for students to read, especially in the subject-matter of cognitive-behavioural therapy
An Excellent text which gives a superb overview of contemporary issues in relation to mental health and wellbeing.
Good beginning text for the higher level student.
Useful for reflective elements of the unit.
This is an insightful and useful merging of emotion and mental health issues, I am recommending it for reading and have had some ordered for our library.
I like this book for its clear relation to the humanisation/ compassion agenda.
Great information regarding emotional well being and mental health for everyone.
This is a very timely book with the introduction of the Care Act 2014 with its overarching aim of well-being. I found the book very interesting for this reason and could relate the different perspectives of well-being to my work as an adult social worker, especially in relation to how well-being relates to choice and control and the strengths approach.
