Well-being is an important topic for many different professions. From health professionals to politicians, a number of fields seek to research, understand and promote wellbeing. As a concept at the heart of psychotherapeutic practice, it is essential that trainee and practising therapists understand the distinctive contribution to our understanding of well-being that each of these professions have made.

In this unique text, author Digby Tantam explores the philosophical, political, economical, psychological, medical and spiritual perspectives on well-being through a psychotherapeutic lens, explaining current research data and summarising findings. Theoretical approaches are balanced with an insight into their practical applications, showing therapists how each approach can inform their practice and make a real difference to the life satisfaction and health of their clients.

Dr Robin Gutteridge

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.
