In this volume we are presented with a series of real-world clinical practices ranging from resilience to chronic stress in caregivers to tinnitus. Now we have our feet on the ground! --Dan G.

From the Inside Flap
A growing empirical database and a developing literature point to the potential of positive psychiatry to improve outcomes and transform care systems, but knowing precisely how to apply positive interventions with patients remains a challenge for many clinicians.
Positive Psychiatry: A Casebook addresses the doubts many practitioners have: it illustrates how clinicians have successfully combined traditional psychiatry approaches and positive interventions, how positive interventions can enhance the quality of medical care, and how these interventions are employed in educational and coaching settings.
The guide opens with an overview of the history of the positive in psychiatry, a summary of the effectiveness of positive interventions, and an over-arching conceptualization of the field of positive psychiatry. Thirteen detailed cases follow, organized into three sections: mental health, medical care, and educational and coaching interventions. The cases provide readers with the opportunity to engage deeply in the clinical descriptions, decision-making, and assessment of outcomes. Those in the third section on education and coaching provide a unique opportunity to assess the effectiveness of positive interventions in nonclinical settings.
No other compendium of psychiatric or positive case material features as wide an array of settings as Positive Psychiatry: A Casebook. This is a must-have reference for any clinician seeking to apply positive interventions to their practice.
