Tools for Strengths-Based Assessment and Evalution

by Peter Lehmann PhD, LCSW and Catherine Simmons, PhD

20141214-BookLink-02Traditionally, assessment and evaluation have focused on the negative aspects or deficits of a client's presentation. Yet strengths, health, and those things that are going "right" in a person's life are key protective factors in the prevention and treatment of many mental health problems. Thus, measuring strengths is an important component of a balanced assessment and evaluation process. This is the first compendium of more than 150 valid and reliable strengths-based assessment tools that clinicians, researchers, educators, and program evaluators can use to assess a wide array of positive attributes, including well-being, optimism, resilience, humor, aspirations, emotional intelligence, and much more.

An Upward Spiral

by Rick Johnson

An Upward SpiralParents of struggling teens often feel confused and helpless, and as a result may disengage from therapy hoping that you will fix their teen. An Upward Spiral can help reengage these parents. It helps clarify for parents that troublesome teen behavior is not mysterious, but often the result of their teen being unprepared to handle the immense physical, emotional, and social changes that come with adolescence. A better understanding of adolescent development empowers parents to respond to their teen in a manner that supports increased maturity. Filled with parenting suggestions, An Upward Spiral is also useful for parent support groups.
