Problems in Living

By John M. Grohol, Psy.D.

Problems in living cover a wide range of topics, because life doesn't come with an owner's manual. (It should, right?) We haven't developed an owner's manual for your life because that would mean we know what's best for you -- and we don't. Only you know what's going to work for you.

We've written a lot about these problems and other challenges in life, whether it be a question about parenting, relationships, managing stress, coping with grief and loss, dealing with loneliness, managing anger, or better understanding how psychotherapy works. We hope the articles listed in the individual guides below are helpful to you in learning more about these topics.

We've compiled a library of articles and information related to problems in living below.


Coping with Life

These are some of the most common problems people face in their life, but often don't rise to the level of a full-blown mental disorder. Rather, psychologists tend to refer to these issues as "problems in living" or a mental health issue.

Additional Resources

These resources may also be of help to you in learning more about your life or needing guidance about something that is concerning to you.

Need help with one of the above problems or issues in your life? Psychotherapy is usually the best option. You should look for a therapist who specializes or is well-experienced in helping a person deal with the specific concern that is bothering you or impacting your life. For instance, seek out a therapist experienced with workplace stress management if that's a concern for you.

Psychotherapy is nonjudgmental. A professional therapist is there to help you address the concerns you have in a safe and supportive environment.
