The Future of Mental Health
Deconstructing the Mental Disorder Paradigm
By (author): Eric Maisel

Forthcoming 6 x 9 in 228 pages Transaction Publishers
Questions traditional notions of mental illness and argues for reform of mental health care.

In The Future of Mental Health, Eric Maisel powerfully deconstructs the “mental disorder” paradigm that is the foundation of current mental health practices and presents a revolutionary alternative paradigm, a “human experience” paradigm. This book drills to the heart of the current mental health crisis, where hundreds of millions of individuals worldwide (including tens of millions of children) receive unwarranted “mental disorder diagnoses.” It paints a picture of how mental health providers can improve their practices to better serve individuals in distress and outlines necessary steps for a mental health revolution.

Eric Maisel, an American psychotherapist, writes the “Rethinking Psychology” column for Psychology Today and leads workshops nationally and internationally. He is the author of more than forty books, including The Van Gogh Blues, Rethinking Depression, and Fearless Creating.
