From Depression to Happiness

Psychiatry has developed a number of tools to help manage symptoms of mental disorders, broadly categorized as psychotherapy, or “talk therapy”, and psychopharmacology, or “medications”. One question left open in this regard, though, is what to do after those symptoms are controlled? How can those with depression be helped to build a better life after the remission of symptoms? Weaving together Positive Psychology and Aristotelian philosophy, this book details an approach to creating a path towards a flourishing life. Building on the two translations of the Greek term “Arete”, virtue and excellence, it links Aristotle’s ideas to those of Martin Seligman, the founder of Positive Psychology, and Howard Gardner, a proponent of the Multiple Intelligences Theory.

The Structure of Conscious Experience

There must exist a point at which the molecular and electro-chemical processes that comprise brain function are transformed into rich, orderly conscious experience which seamlessly blends the present moment, what led up to it, and what will follow it. This is the stuff of our everyday lives, and it raises questions about its organization and how that organization facilitates engagement with the world at large. In short, what is the structure of conscious experience and what is gained by it being structured that way?This book argues that the structure is what is familiarly known as narrative form and that the gain is the ability to communicate about one’s experience with oneself and others, as well as to make informed predictions about what will happen in the fundamentally unknowable and potentially dangerous future. In the latter case, because the essence of narrative form is time and causality, structuring events from memory (the past) and from perception (the present) in narrative form causally implies future events (expectations). The potential threat (the bad or the absence of good) of these expected future events can be assessed, and, if required, action can be taken to prevent their occurrence or to diminish their impact. The implications about thinking and action, and about who we are as individuals, are also discussed here.

Traditional Counselling

Traditional counselling is an under-researched field, with inadequate scholarly documentation on the approaches, procedures and process outcomes that should motivate researchers, counselling psychologists and educationists to tap from the abundant unchartered waters. This book represents a major step towards narrowing these gaps. Its main contribution is the articulation of a theoretical framework of traditional counselling, the delineation of traditional counselling approaches and processes, and the clarification of the scope of problems apparent in the sphere of traditional counselling. Traditional counselling is rooted in traditional systems of knowledge and sociocultural values, customs and practices, is essentially community-based and multicultural in nature, and promotes a collective inclination to problem identification, resolution and management. This underscores the importance, relevance and usefulness of traditional counselling from an African perspective. The book is a thought-provoking investigation on counselling models.
