Integrates popular postmodern techniques within a model of strength discovery and development
The counseling model presented in this book goes beyond traditional approaches by equipping mental health practitioners with strength-centered techniques and interventions. It also provides graduate students in counselor education programs a foundation while working in an effective broad-application model of counseling.
Authors Colin C. Ward and Teri Reuter resolve the ambiguity about how postmodernism fits into everyday practice and offer a cutting-edge text that presents the counseling knowledge and skills needed to assist individuals and families with embracing life's struggles not only from a context of problems and adversity, but also of solutions, strengths, and wellness.
This text is designed for mental health practitioners as well as counseling theories and skills related courses in counseling, psychology, and related fields.
