I could itemize how these stresses manifest themselves in our individual professional lives, in APA itself, and most importantly in the lives of our patients and their families, but I think we have all thought about that a lot, so I’ll just underscore the reality and validity of the heightened burdens we have shared. What I would like to emphasize, however, is what resides within so many of us—the resilience, capacity to cope, and power of hope that so often trump the adversities that come our way. While we sustain our efforts to deepen our understanding of the pathophysiology and etiology of psychiatric illness (efforts that are producing huge dividends), we are “waking up” (or perhaps returning) to a person-centered, health-promoting framework of medicine. In my book, a recovery perspective does not deny the reality of illness nor does it insist on “cure” as the only acceptable outcome. Rather, it endorses the importance of evidence-based treatment combined with efforts to harness each patient’s strengths and talents, to minimize impairment in functioning, and to maximize quality of life.
