Strengths-based counseling 2.0: Continuing the discussion
This book is written from the perspective of many authors discussing their work as to what they believe to be a strengths-based model. Each has his or her own approach and view of how a strengthsbased model fits their own unique work situation. Although the client populations and clinical settings may be different, two components remain constant: (a) the clinician’s belief that using a strengths-based model is more effective than using the traditional medical model of pathologizing clients and (b) a rejection of the notion that the clinicians have more knowledge about the needs of the client than does the client him-or herself.
