Other future titles will cover: anger, psychosis, disturbed children, self-harming, antisocial behaviour, workplace stress and parenting. (The series is part of a larger nationwide effort to move counselling, psychotherapy and education away from ideology and more into line with scientific findings about how the brain works and what people really need to live fulfillinglives.)
