Summary
It is commonly noted that one in four people experience mental illness at some time in their lives. In spite of the increasing sophistication of our cultures and economic systems, we are still a society which contends with high levels of anxiety and dissatisfaction. For many the presence of digital technologies is exasperating the problem by distorting our sense of self and social relationships. 'Group Therapy: Mental Distress in a Digital Age [A User's Guide]' presents a diverse collection of essays, artworks and personal testimony exploring connections between mental health and the social constructs, political conditions and technologies that structure our lives. Presnted in three sections, Society, Technology and Creative Practice, this book features contributions from a broad range of artists, researchers, clinicians and mental health activists. It harnesses the personal experience of its contributors to offer first-hand knowledge about the factors that influence well-being in the twenty-first century. -- Publisher's description
