Well-Being in People Living With Disabilities (Archived)

Barry Nierenberg, PhD, ABPP

Dr. Barry Nierenberg discusses group interventions for developing psychological well-being in people living with disabilities. Although research data indicate that most people living with a disability return to premorbid levels of psychological functioning, some are vulnerable for developing psychological disorders such as depression, anxiety, and posttraumatic stress disorder. Shifting the therapeutic focus from psychopathology to one of well-being holds possibility for improving the lives of persons with disabilities. Dr. Nierenberg describes the use of Well-Being Therapy as a group intervention for this population because it has proven efficacy in acting as a buffer against the development of negative affective states.
