Inhaltsangabe: We seem to be living through an epidemic of stress. Thousands of therapists, counsellors and healers are devoted to protecting - and perhaps even saving - us from a disease that they say debilitates, and even kills. Britain alone is host to more than 4 million websites dedicated to the subject, while every year millions of pounds are committed to fighting stress. But are these efforts really combating stress? In this brilliant re-assessment of our understanding of this ailment, Angela Patmore establishes what we do - and do not - know about stress by examining what it actually is. In the Truth About Stress Angela Patmore addresses all aspects of this ever-spreading problem, from the activities of the stress-management community and the huge variety of treatments it offers, to an analysis of the kinds of physical suffering produced by stress. From symptoms to cure, Patmore raises important questions about the way we treat a condition that has become central part of modern living. Its conclusions will cause us to profoundly reappraise the way we understand our own health and well-being.
Inhaltsangabe: This controversial expose of a multimillion-pound industry argues quite simply that the term 'stress', when applied to human beings, is completely meaningless. We seem to be living through an epidemic of stress. There are 15 million websites dedicated to the subject and Britain alone has over two million accredited therapists, counsellors and healers devoted to protecting us from what they claim is a debilitating disease.But is there really a stress problem? In this brilliant and provocative analysis, Angela Patmore examines the confusion and controversy surrounding the whole concept, raising important questions about the treatments and advice that offer to cure it. She argues that the health angst engendered by all this lucrative 'stress awareness' sends its victims in search of therapy and sedation and fuels an epidemic costing the UK billions.Far from helping people cope with their problems and feelings, Patmore contends, the unregulated industry is harming them. Her conclusions suggest we need to reappraise profoundly the way we understand our own health and well-being.
