The Strengths Model, Third Editionpresents a recovery-oriented approach to helping people with a psychiatric disability identify and achieve meaningful and important life goals. The Strengths Model is both a philosophy of practice as well as a specific set of tools and methods designed to facilitate a working partnership between client and practitioner toward recovery. In-depth discussion and examples help guide the practitioner from theoretical concepts to applied practice strategies. Attention is also given to agency structures and the role of the front-line supervisor as key components to successful large scale implementation of the Strengths Model.
