Abstract:

The first book to tackle the crucial question of HOW to get well. It offers simple, research-based psychological strategies for recovery - a modern-day convalescent's toolkit. In days gone by, people understood that a knock to your health takes its toll on your emotions, your relationships, your morale, your 'spirit'. But these days, we think that if the doctor has waved you off, then you are 'better'. We neglect what scientific studies show is a vital element of recovery: the emotional side of getting better. As a result, many of us struggle with hidden issues such as depression, stress and anxiety long after a health crisis. This book centres on the crucial, research-based truth that 'getting better' is not just about the body - emotions play a huge part.
