This book offers a succinct model of recovery from serious mental illness, synthesizing stories of lived experience to provide a framework for clinical work and research in the field of recovery. It places the process of recovery within the context of normal human growth and development, and compares and contrasts concepts of recovery from mental illness with the literature on grief, loss and trauma. The book also situates recovery within the growing field of positive psychology -- focusing on the active, hopeful process, and describes a consumer-oriented, stage-based model of psychological recovery which is unique in its focus on intrapersonal processes.
