A Therapeutic Journey

Lessons from the School of Life

Alain de Botton

23

The essential guide to mental health from the bestselling author of The School of Life

A Therapeutic Journey follows the arc from mental crisis and collapse to convalescence and recovery. Written with kindness, knowledge and sympathy, it is both a practical guide and a source of consolation and companionship in what might be some of our loneliest, most anguished moments.

Alain de Botton explores how we can cope with a variety of forms of mental pain and illness, from the mild to the severe. It considers how and why we might become ill; how we can explain things to friends, family and colleagues; how we can find our ways towards recovery; and how we can build resilience, so as to live wisely alongside our difficulties.

At heart this is a book about redemption - about regaining the thread of our lives, rediscovering meaning, and finding our way back to connection, warmth and joy.

'Alain de Botton is a brave and highly intelligent writer' Observer

'One of our most consistently illuminating writers on contemporary culture' John Gray, New Statesman
