Bite-Sized Book Review: Emotional Well-Being and Mental Health - A Guide for Counsellors and Psychotherapists by Digby Tantam

As links between emotional health and capacity for happiness become more relevant to evidence based practise in psychotherapy and counselling, Digby Tantam’s latest offering Emotional Well-Being and Mental Health (Sage 2014) is a well-timed reminder that an industry which has been seemingly hi-jacked by various positive psychology health brands, is in fact well rooted in ancient philosophy and is a subject of ongoing global scientific scrutiny.

A psychiatrist in the NHS for most of his working life, Emeritus Professor at the University of Sheffield and co-founder the NSPC alongside his eminent spouse Professor Emmy van Deurzen, he offers a concise and insightful summary of contemporary knowledge into the art and science of happiness. Spanning the findings of philosophers, health economists, politicians, the religious and psychotherapists, this is a study straddling the pragmatic, the political, philosophical, spiritual and therapeutic perspectives.

One of the core strengths of this book is that despite the erudite and eclectic mix, the personal representation of humanity is never released from focus. The reader is consistently drawn back into the multiple contexts of applicability. This is an essential read for Psychotherapists and Counsellors already curious with questions as how we define and measure happiness and seeking a contemporary and enlightened viewpoint on an age old question.
