Moving away from the usual medical-modeled framework of mental health focused on problems, Strengths-Based Supervision in Clinical Practice by Jeffrey K. Edwards takes a postmodern, social construction approach, looking for and amplifying strengths and encouraging stakeholders to use them. Based on research in brain science, as well as from the Information Age/Connectivity Age thinking, the book reframes the focus of supervision, management, and leadership to one that collaborates and builds on strengths with supervisees as competent stakeholders in their work with their clients.

"Through the frame of positive psychology, Wade and Jones solidify a next step in conceptualization and practice of supervision. This expansive view of historical, narrative, literary, and theoretical approaches is a significant addition to the supervision literature." Carol Falender, PhD, University of California, Los Angeles "For many of us in mental health fields our "training" in supervision occurred on the job. We mirrored the examples of positive supervision we experienced or tried to avoid the pitfalls we associated with negative supervision experiences. But being a competent and proficient supervisor is far more than emulation or avoidance of past experience. It is a vital aspect of our jobs and requires a pedagogical approach steeped in best practices and evidence. Strength Based Clinical Supervision offers a comprehensive approach to providing sound clinical supervision and should be part of any training program for clinicians who will one day supervise, mentor, or instruct anyone entering the field of mental health services." Carrie Fleider, MSW, LISW-S, Assistant Director for Training, Counseling and Consultation Services, The Ohio State University As evidenced by the recent proliferation of books about positive psychology, there is a growing realization about the importance of focusing on an individual's strengths. Yet there has been little written about positive psychology that applies this approach to training and supervision. To fill this void, Strengths-Based Clinical Supervision combines the principles of positive psychology with research on effective supervision and training from various disciplines along with the characteristics of effective clinical supervisors. Designed for use with courses on clinical supervision in psychology, counseling, social work, the book is also an ideal resource for supervisors of Masterís and Doctoral-level trainees as well as licensed professionals. It emphasizes practical applications and provides examples of questions and prompts to be used in supervision sessions. Chapters feature practical applications of key concepts as well as discussion questions to encourage retention of the material. Key Features: Integrates the basic principles of positive psychology with those of effective supervision and training Emphasizes practical applications of positive psychology to clinical supervision across multiple disciplines Includes examples of questions and prompts to be used in actual supervision sessions

Goal Focused Positive Psychotherapy (GFPP) is the first comprehensive approach to strength-oriented therapy that fully incorporates positive psychology principles. This book provides instruction for therapists and students wishing to learn a strength-oriented mindset and the necessary skills. GFPP consists of four hallmarks: (1) formation of approach goals; (2) identification and use of client strengths; (3) promotion of positive emotions and experiences; and (4) building hope. Unique to psychotherapy, the theory of change uses Frederickson's Broaden-and-Build Theory of positive emotions. A three-year study is presented that provides evidence of GFPP's outcome effectiveness and GFPP's superiority in supporting therapists building therapeutic alliances with clients. The book describes the therapeutic techniques and positive psychology interventions including positive empathy, capitalization, best possible self, success-finding, encouragement, self-affirmation, mindfulness, miracle and scaling questions, and self-compassion. The primary emphasis of GFPP is to promote happiness, health, and well-being in clients, in contrast to the emphasis of traditional therapy approaches on problem symptom alleviation. The assumption is that clients who benefit by increasing their well-being will be equipped to address problems in their life that inevitably arise. Training and supervision methods are suggested and a supervision model is provided. The information is integrated and illustrated with a chapter of case examples from four GFPP therapists. Readers learn that client problems are not ignored but balanced with an emphasis on positive issues that use the client's strengths and enhance the client's hope. GFPP will appeal to counseling, clinical, and school psychologists, as well as counselors, marriage and family therapists, social workers, life coaches, and students in all these fields.

This book presents a practical yet comprehensive framework for thinking about and doing clinical supervision. It provides a strengths based, process phase model that begins with engagement and "carries through" to assessment, goal setting, intervention and evaluation. There is also an intervention section that focuses on the clinical supervisor's administrative role as manager, which includes information on managing risk, and managing the agency/staff "fit". Issues related to culturally competent practice, ethics and legal issues are weaved through the text from beginning to end. To help students learn the complex dynamics of clinical supervision, Dr. Cohen provides a multitude of case illustrations gathered form 30 years of practice experience. These examples are intended to make didactic features of the framework "come alive" as they illuminate the thinking processes of the participants and in most cases, their feelings and behavior as well.
