The Strengths Perspective in Social Work Practicepresents an unrivaled collection of essays that explain the strengths-based philosophy, demonstrate how it works, and provide clear and practical tools for its application. This Fourth Edition includes six new chapters on subjects such as: how to shift ones frame of mind to practice from a strengths perspective; using slave narratives of strength and resistance as guides and inspiration in the fight to end poverty; understanding and promoting the resilience of families; how to solve problems using a strengths perspective; using a strengths approach in working with substance abuse problems; and a new look at the relationships between individual strengths and environmental resources. In addition, many other chapters have been significantly updated with new concepts and ideas, new references, new case vignettes, and new inquiry. The study questions have been revised to reflect the changing knowledge in the field. This is possibly the most extensive and varied text in the rapidly expanding field of strengths literature.
