Individual strengths-healthy relationships, religious beliefs, cultural identity, skills, hobbies, and other sources of support-are a key protective factor in the prevention or mitigation of many mental health problems. This is the first compendium of 100 valid and reliable strengths-based assessment tools that clinicians can use to incorporate strengths into the assessment and evaluation process.The book explains why and how to use strengths-based approaches in clinical practice and distinguishes them from the deficit-based models. Evidence for the effectiveness of strength approaches is presented along with an examination of validity, reliability, and other factors to consider when selecting among assessment tools. The 100 practical assessment instruments are consistently formatted and organized according to populations and/or construct measured, and include tools for working with children, couples, families and special populations and specific issues.
