Introduction

April 24th, 2011

I remain optimistic about everyone’s capacity to change.

I want everyone to be optimistic while engaged in this important work we do. With this mindset we can be more creative; we can achieve much more.

Why don’t people believe that people’s problems can be resolved, instead of being endlessly on psychiatric medications? As you will see in these articles, there are clinicians and authors who do believe problems can be remedied, even with diagnoses such as schizophrenia.

We need to hear more of the ideas of those clinicians who are optimistic, creative and successful.

I have collected together ideas from more than 20 years working in this field. I was amazed when I came across them. I still hardly hear them spoken about, and so I expect they are likely to be new to many readers.

Collectively these essays tell you why I am optimistic about the capacity for clients to recover, and more quickly than we often see.

I hope these ideas will stimulate greater hope in you.

It would be lovely if you find them useful and wish to spread them amongst your colleagues, or clients and families.

    PROBLEMS PERSIST BECAUSE THE SAME OLD THINKING IS USED
