Living With Psychosis, Recovery and Wellbeing By Elina Baker & Melanie Attwater

This is a self-help book, co-written by a clinical psychologist and a person with lived experience of psychosis and offers information about a range of ways of understanding and coping with psychosis, from both professional and personal perspectives. 

From the authors: In this book, We use the word ''psychosis'' to describe experiences outside of shared reality, such as voices, visions and an awareness of other unusual occurrences, which someone may find distressing. Based on our work running groups to support people who have these kinds of experiences, this book brings together psychological ideas about and personal experience of recovery in relation to psychosis. Each chapter also contains a 'section for reflection', to give you the opportunity to think about how to use these ideas and experiences in your own recovery.

We hope that this book will enable other people struggling with psychosis, either personally or as a relative, friend or worker, to find ways of understanding and managing these experiences successfully. We also want to give a message of hope, to let people know that they are not alone and that recovery is possible.
