Working with Client Strengths
09:00AM - 12:00PM
Historically, psychotherapy has focused on pathology and deficits, but a focus on client strengths and resiliencies can enhance client motivation, faith in the therapy process, as well as goal attainment and hope.
Through lecture, demonstration and experiential exercises, participants will be introduced to interventions and approaches that tap into clients’ agency and strengths in order to mobilize positive change. This course will utilize positive psychology research on life satisfaction and well-being; tools from the collaborative approaches of solution-focused therapy, motivational interviewing, and narrative therapy, and clinical applications of self-efficacy theory.
