Abstract

Prospection, the representation of possible futures, is a ubiquitous feature of the human mind (Seligman et al., 2013). In this chapter we adopt a subjunctive mood and go beyond evidence within the three sections covered in this book to explore possible futures for both recovery and wellbeing, identifying three emerging themes within each area. Some are well-established themes growing further, such as peer support, whereas others are nascent, such as wellbeing literacy. The chapter concludes with some reflections upon the interaction between wellbeing and recovery in the future - returning the reader to the original intent of this book. Is recovery a transitional discourse? If so, transitioning to what? Will we ever talk of a lived experience of wellbeing? Can wellbeing be conceived of as an emancipatory politics, not in competition with the intent of recovery?
