Therapist's Guide to Positive Psychological Interventions Hardback
Part of the Practical Resources for the Mental Health Professional series
Positive psychology - essentially the scientific study of the strengths that enable individuals and communities to thrive - is a relatively new discipline that has experienced substantial growth in the last 5-10 years.
Research suggests that the principles and theories from this area of study are highly relevant to the practice of counseling and psychotherapy, and positive psychology presents clinicians and patients with a much needed balance to the more traditional focus on pathology and the disease model of mental health.
This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the best-researched positive psychological interventions.
It emphasizes clinical application, providing a detailed view of how the research can be applied to patients.
Covering the broaden-and-build theory, strengths-based therapy, mentoring modalities and more, the volume will provide numerous assessment tools, exercises and worksheets for use throughout the counseling and psychotherapy process.
