Strength-Centered Counseling: Integrating Postmodern Approaches and Skills With Practice

Integrates the most popular and most used counselling techniques into current teaching and practice

This text provides a framework for the synthesis of postmodern theories of counselling. The cutting-edge Strength Centered Counseling model can be incorporated effectively with the more traditional models of counselling, resolving the ambiguity about how postmodernism fits into every day practice and results in more direct application of knowledge and skill sets for training in counsellor education. Authors Colin Ward and Teri Reuter offer a practical and straightforward resource that presents clients with opportunities to look at life not only from a context of problems and adversity; but also of solutions, strengths, and hope.

Key Features

  • Interactive learning experiences including Learning Activities (within chapters) and Professional Growth Activities (at the end of chapters) present throughout the text
  • Clear direction for application of principles, techniques and interventions
  • Counsellor Interview and Reflection guides serve as both valuable as a learning tool and a structural guide for future sessions with clients
  • Strength cards help students develop key skills
  • DVD included inside


This text is appropriate for counselling theories and counselling skills related courses in counselling, psychology, and related fields.
