Health is clearly a topical issue at both political and cultural levels....

  • If you have ever been asked by a client, family member, student, or policy maker, if there is more to treatment for mental illness than just symptom reduction, this book is for you. This question fi rst emerges from the idea that the pursuit of health is a common, human goal, intrinsic to all individuals in all societies. This is not a new phenomenon.
