Advancing Social Work in Mental Health Through Strengths Based Practice

ByAbraham P. FrancisVenkat Pulla

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This (SECOND EDITION) book is about ‘strengths-based practice’ in social work. Strengths based practice refers to the identification of ‘strengths’ within an individual, family, or community, which are then employed to aid in promoting self-fulfilment and healing in a client. Strengths-based practice is a deliberate shift away from language and practices based on a client’s deficits or pathology--- a widespread approach that has dominated many fields within social science for some time--- to one that focuses on the client’s strengths. This premise is not a new idea as it has existed in the writings and practice of many of the great philosophical leaders and social work practitioners.
