Key scientific trends have converged to deepen our understanding of mental health. The covid-19 pandemic has highlighted, on a global scale, the necessity for an increased focus on mental health. Conceptions of mental health and mental dysfunction have broadened, to take into account new knowledge about the genetic, biological, developmental, social, societal, and cultural nature of human beings. The Encyclopedia of Mental Health, Third Edition, Four Volume Set brings together these emerging trends and discoveries, to paint a deep-seated picture of mental health, in the context of overall health and well-being. This third edition spans across four volumes, comprising 260 comprehensive chapters on topics like depression, schizophrenia, mood disorders, suicide, personality disorders, dementia, panic attacks, paranoia, somatization, conduct disorder, dissociative disorders, obsessive–compulsive disorder, Alzheimer's disease, phobias, divorce, PTSD, burn-out, grief, as well as up-and-coming research findings on mental health topics in the wake of Covid-19. It also includes therapies–cognitive therapy, behaviorist, psychoanalytic, constructivist, exposure therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, narrative therapies, biofeedback, tele-psychology, virtual reality therapy, and more. Moreover, the encyclopedia explores links to behavioral medicine, health psychology, and other aspects of physical health. This third edition includes coverage of the validity of psychiatric diagnosis. Notably, it covers the positive aspects of mental health, including forgiveness, gratitude, happiness, hope, empathy, humor, awe, self-healing personalities, heroism, altruism, and growth. And, in modernized nations, tremendous amounts of money and effort are expended on issues involving physicality, exercise, and diet, and so discussion of physical activity, sports, exercise, dieting, and body image is also included.
