              Emotionality has long been recognised as a crucial ingredient in human beings. A good connection with emotionality is essential; and it is highly complicated and dynamic in human life. It can never be fully explained or analysed by rational analysis and measurement of emotions. T...he writer has published a book Emotionality & Mental Illness: A Multi-dimensional Model in New York: Nova Science in 2012 in which various perspectives in emotionality are described. It is also related to ones meaning of life, self and ego strengths, mind, body, behaviours and deeds, interpersonal relationships, roles and social functioning. Then, a multi-dimensional model in terms of feeling, mood, affect and sense is constructed to interpret the emotionality of persons with mental problems is also described. This book is an extension and elaboration of the above mentioned book, and the second in a two volume series. It is a further refined articulation of emotionality in severe mental illness. Based on the multi-dimensional model of emotionality in terms of affect, mood, feeling and sense, the writer tries to interpret and intervene with the emotionality of severe mental illnesses such as the blunt affect of schizophrenia, feelings of anger in major depressive disorder, a dissociative sense of fear in post-traumatic stress disorder and the lonely mood in borderline personality disorder. In this book, the writer begins each chapter with a focus on the various perspectives of a specific type of mental illness. Based on these perspectives, the writer attempts to integrate these perspectives with related concepts in emotionality hoping that it can provide a humanistic, yet pioneering, platform in interpreting and intervening in persons with severe mental illnesses.

              We all long for a life of purpose and fulfillment. Striving for high quality of life for us and those we care for is a powerful motivator. Many busy people dream of being lazy by a pool fanned by a soft summer breeze, but this does not last. A short time of rest and replenishment... is quickly replaced by boredom and a sense of purposelessness. Quality of life is much deeper than material comfort, though this has a role. Sadly in our world today, many people live lives lacking in meaning and value: the unemployed, the underemployed, those with disabilities who would like to contribute to society but are deprived the opportunity. Their quality of life is not what it could be. In this book, we have attempted to provide examples of how people face challenges, and the family members, professionals and care personnel who support them can be helped and supported through services working within a quality of life framework. The book provides a challenge to be addressed by the individual, their families, local communities, governments, international organizations and the society at large.
