In this 8 tape program, Bill O'Hanlon offers a conceptual model and demonstrates practical methods for using spiritual resources to help clients elicit their own strengths, solutions and possibilities. He discusses how clinicians can bring their own sense of spirituality into therapy without imposing these beliefs on their clients. With its focus on strengths and relatively brief treatment length, this approach is especially appropriate for managed health care settings.
