Routledge psychological impacts

Summary

"Advancements in research in psychological science have afforded great insights into how our minds work. Making an Impact on Mental Health and Illness analyzes contemporary, international research to examine a number of core themes in mental health, such as mindfulness and attachment, and provide an understanding of the sources of mentally ill health and strategies for remediation. The originality of this work is the embedding of psychological science in an evolutionary approach. Each chapter discusses the context of a specific research project, looking at the methodological and practical challenges, how the results have been interpreted and communicated, the impact and legacy of the research, and the lessons learnt. As a whole, the book looks at how social environments shape who we are and how we form relationships with others, which can be detrimental, but equally a source of flourishing and wellbeing. Covering a range of themes conducive to understanding and facilitating improved mental health, Making an Impact on Mental Health and Illness is invaluable reading for advanced students in clinical psychology and professionals in the mental health field"--
