Overcoming reduced activity and avoidance: a Five Areas approach

  • Anne Garland, Richard Fox and Chris Williams
Extract

In the first three papers of this series (Williams & Garland, 2002a,b; Wright et al, 2002), we looked at the different areas of human experience that alter during times of mental illness. The Five Areas Assessment model (Williams, 2001; see Williams & Garland, 2002a, Fig. 1) provides a clear summary of the range of problems and difficulties faced by individuals in each of the following domains: 1

life situation, relationships, practical problems

2

altered thinking

3

altered emotions (moods or feelings)

4

altered physical feelings/symptoms

5

altered behaviour or activity levels.
