Combining both the theory and practice of strengths-based therapy, Elsie Jones-Smith introduces current and future practitioners to the modern approach of practice—presenting a model for treatment as well as demonstrations in clinical practice across a variety of settings. This highly effective form of therapy supports the idea that clients know best about what has worked and has not worked in their lives, helps them discover positive and effective solutions through their own experiences, and allows therapists to engage their clients in their own therapy. Drawing from cutting-edge research in neuroscience, positive emotions, empowerment, and change, Strengths-Based Therapy helps readers understand how to get their clients engaged as active participants in treatment.

Momentan sind in der Fachwelt die Begriffe Resilienz und Resilienzförderung in aller Munde. In einem Augenblick, in dem hierzulande noch kaum Konzepte zur praktischen Umsetzung vorliegen, Resilienzförderung aber manchmal wie das neue Zauberwort betrachtet wird, versucht dieses Handbuch erste Orientierungspunkte zu geben. Im Anfangsteil kommen namhafte Autorinnen und Autoren des angelsächsischen Raumes zu Wort, dem die Idee entstammt. Ein mittlerer Teil reflektiert die grundsätzlichen Chancen und Grenzen des Konzepts, fragt aber auch nach dem gesellschaftlichen Kontext in der Bundesrepublik, in welchem dieser neuartige Ansatz wirken soll mit seinem Perspektivenwechsel hin zu den Stärken von Kindern und Jugendlichen. Wem kann überhaupt geholfen werden? Welche sozialen Schieflagen bleiben bestehen? Was bedeutet es, Kinder und Jugendliche zu 'stärken' in einer Gesellschaft, die längst nur auf die ‚Starken’ setzt? Ein umfangreicher Praxisteil dokumentiert dann die Vielfalt der auf verschiedensten Feldern bisher verfolgten Ansätze, gibt Anregungen für die alltägliche Arbeit mit Kindern und Jugendlichen und versucht das spezifisch Neuartige von Resilienzförderung herauszustellen.

From youth culture to adolescent sexuality to the consumer purchasing power of children en masse, studies are flourishing. Yet doing research on this unquestionably more vulnerable—whether five or fifteen—population also poses a unique set of challenges and dilemmas for researchers. How should a six-year-old be approached for an interview? What questions and topics are appropriate for twelve year olds? Do parents need to give their approval for all studies? In Representing Youth, Amy L. Best has assembled an important group of essays from some of today’s top scholars on the subject of youth that address these concerns head on, providing scholars with thoughtful and often practical answers to their many methodological concerns. These original essays range from how to conduct research on youth in ways that can be empowering for them, to issues of writing and representation, to respecting boundaries and to dealing with issues of risk and responsibility to those interviewed. For anyone doing research or working with children and young adults, Representing Youth offers an indispensable guide to many of the unique dilemmas that research with kids entails. Contributors include: Amy L. Best, Sari Knopp Biklen, Elizabeth Chin, Susan Driver, Marc Flacks, Kathryn Gold Hadley, Madeline Leonard, C.J. Pascoe, Rebecca Raby, Alyssa Richman, Jessica Taft, Michael Ungar, Yvonne Vissing, and Stephani Etheridge Woodson.

More than two decades after Michael Rutter (1987) published his summary of protective processes associated with resilience, researchers continue to report definitional ambiguity in how to define and operationalize positive development under adversity. The problem has been partially the result of a dominant view of resilience as something individuals have, rather than as a process that families, schools,communities and governments facilitate. Because resilience is related to the presence of social risk factors, there is a need for an ecological interpretation of the construct that acknowledges the importance of people’s interactions with their environments. The Social Ecology of Resilience provides evidence for this ecological understanding of resilience in ways that help to resolve both definition and measurement problems.
