An interdisciplinary handbook about strengths-based clinical practices, this book finds the common factors in specific models from social work, psychology, and counseling. The book ends with a grounded theory informed method that pulls together what each of the chapters report, and posits a theory based on that work. Comprised of 23 chapters and written by leaders in the human services fields, Handbook of Strengths-Based Clinical Practices shows how professionals and students can facilitate change and resiliency in those with whom they work.
