Presenting a compelling alternative to the traditional medical approach, The Strengths Model demonstrates an evidence-based approach to helping people with a psychiatric disability identify and achieve meaningful and important life goals. Since the first edition of this classic textbook appeared, the strengths model has matured into a robust vision of mental health services. Both a philosophy of practice and a specific set of tools and methods, the strengths model is designed to facilitate a recovery-oriented partnership between client and practitioner. This completely revised edition charts the evolution of the strengths model, reviews the empirical support behind it, and illustrates the techniques and values that guide its application. Features new to this edition: - An extensive update of the strengths literature, focusing on recovery as the dominant paradigm in mental health services - Richly drawn case vignettes demonstrating the application of methods - Integration of empirical research and consumers>' own experiences - Completely updated strengths assessment and fidelity scales - In-depth discussions and examples guide practitioners from theory to applied practice - Descriptions of how to teach and successfully supervise large-scale implementations of strengths model work For social workers and other mental health specialists working with clients to move beyond the disabling effects of mental illness to a life filled with meaning, purpose, and identity, this remains the crucial text.

This book offers to serve as a guide for professionals in understanding and applying a strength based perspectives for Chinese clients with mental illness and to discuss the Chinese articulation of concepts and practice of these perspective within Chinese culture. Ever since the emergence of a medical model in the explanation of mental illness, the disease model or deficit/problem orientation became the dominant paradigm in perceiving, treating and rehabilitating persons with mental illness. The terms 'mentally ill' and 'mental patient' serve as labels for both professionals, family caregivers and members of community to describe the burden, the needs of care and treatment for persons with mental illness. These labels also justify the establishment and implementation of mental health services. Under the influences of the disease model, persons with mental illness are regarded as subjects for academic research, patients for treatment, clients for intervention, and objects for stigmatisation and labelling.

The Strengths Model is the first text to focus exclusively on the alternative - the strengths model of practice, which focuses on helping people, not as patients or clients, but as individuals. Empirical testing of this model and its results have consistently shown that it is superior to traditional approaches for serving people with mental illness. The Strengths Model presents the theory, values, and principles on which the model was founded, as well as explicit practice methods that have been developed and refined over the past fifteen years. Offering a good balance between theory and practice, this text is ideal for students in social work, psychology, nursing, psychiatry, vocational rehabilitation, and occupational therapy, as well as for case managers and other mental health professionals and practitioners.

During the past decade or more, there has been a rapid evolution of mental health services and treatment technologies, shifting psychiatric epidemiology, changes in public behavioral health policy and increased understanding in medicine regarding approaches to clinical work that focus on patient-centeredness. These contemporary issues need to be articulated in a comprehensive format. The American Association of Community Psychiatrists (AACP), a professional organization internationally recognized as holding the greatest concentration of expertise in the field, has launched a methodical process to create a competency certification in community psychiatry. As a reference for a certification examination, that effort will benefit enormously from a comprehensive handbook on the subject.
