SAGE Publications Inc
1 Jan 2013
Strength Based Therapy is the a text on working with clients through the lens of positive psychology. It lays a theoretical foundation to help students and practitioners understand the grounding and theory behind the approach and then lays out a model for use with a variety of client types/settings. The book draws from cutting edge research on neuroscience, positive emotions, empowerment and change. It helps students understand how to get the client engaged as an active participant in their treatment by assuming the client knows best about what has worked and has not worked in their lives. It draws heavily on skill building and cognitive behavioral (evidence based) approaches. The book will first present the theory and model and then go into application via various clinical illustrations.
