This book is rich with clinical dialogues that help readers put into practice the collaborative, transtheoretical ideas and methods of strengths-based therapy. SBT challenges the assumptions of diagnosis-based treatments and offers an alternative client-directed approach. A must read for mental health practitioners and graduate students. Michael J. Lambert, Ph.D., Professor, Brigham Young University Editor of "Bergin and Garfield's Handbook of Psychotherapy and Behavior Change" Whether you're a novice and simply curious about Strength-Based Therapy, or an experienced SBT clinician, this book is a must read. It offers an in-depth understanding of the roots of this client-centered therapy approach, a clear description of its components along with clinical examples that bring the ideas to life. Regardless of your current theoretical model, if you want better outcomes with your clientsand more enjoyment from your workyou will greatly benefit from this practical guide. Michele Weiner- Davis, LCSW Co-author of "In Search of Solutions: A New Direction in Psychotherapy" I am very excited to see the publication of this book. Emphasizing a strength-based approach to therapy is not only a needed addition to current practice, it is a needed corrective. Fostering strength is one of the best ways to correct psychopathology. The book provides an excellent theoretical and research base for this approach, and follows it up with a whole set of useful suggestions for strength-based practice. Arthur C. Bohart, Professor Emeritus, California State University-Dominguez Hills Author of "How Clients Make Therapy Work: The Process of Active Self-Healing" It is clear from the research that clients--not therapists--are the principal driving force behind positive therapeutic change. This unique and compelling book shows how counsellors and psychotherapists can capitalise on that and help clients make the most of their therapy. Accessible, informed and illustrated throughout with client studies and dialogues, Strengths-based therapy can help therapists of all orientations develop their practice in a client-centred, outcome-informed, and socially-just direction. An invaluable addition to the contemporary counselling and psychotherapy literature. Mick Cooper, Professor, University of Roehampton Co-author of "Pluralistic Counselling and Psychotherapy" Read Strength-Based Therapy and improve your therapeutic success rate. Murphy and Sparks share a thought-provoking non-pathologizing therapy in which client wisdom is championed as a major ingredient of successful outcome. They generously illustrate this with their wealth of clinical experienceshowing their embodiment of respect and humility, and importantly, exemplifying 'doing social justice. Harlene Anderson, Ph.D., International Consultant, The Toas Institute, Houston Galveston Institute.
