This volume offers clinicians an inside view of several new competency-based approaches that are transforming the field of psychotherapy. Unlike therapies that focus on deficits and dysfunction, this book describes approaches that build on client successes and strengths. Seen as a collaborative process in which therapist and client co-construct meaning in therapeutic conversation, the clinician acts as a facilitator who joins with the client to generate narratives of strength, hope, and optimism as alternatives to the dominant problem-saturated story. In-depth clinical examples demonstrate the application of these ideas. In addition, at the end of each chapter is an illuminating question-and-answer exchange between the editor and the chapter author, providing the reader with a uniquely personal view of the process of therapy.

"Packed with valuable information...highly recommended for practitioners and students studying practice."
-Crisis Intervention

"A manifes to of our times....Individual, couples, and family therapists can benefit, mightily, by reading sections one and two. Family therapy instructors can use the manifesto almost as a textbook. Theoreticians will find a great deal to excerpt from as they turn the manifesto into a constitution."
-American Journal of Psychotherapy
