Thrive: the power of evidence-based psychological therapies

This event marks the launch of David Clark and Richard Layard’s new book, Thrive|,
which argues that mental health problems are pervasive. They have massive social
impacts and huge economic costs. They can be effectively treated by evidence-based
psychological therapies, but these are not widely available. They should be.


David M. Clark is professor of experimental psychology at the University of Oxford and a leading clinical psychologist. His work particularly focuses on understanding and treating anxiety disorders.

Richard Layard is emeritus professor of economics at LSE and was founder-director of its Centre for Economic Performance. He is the author of the best-seller Happiness and a member of the House of Lords.

Andrew Marr is a journalist, broadcaster and author. He hosts the BBC1 programme The Andrew Marr Show and BBC Radio 4’s Start the Week.
