"Appreciative Inquiry for Collaborative Solutions: 21 Strength-Based Workshops is a unique application of Appreciative Inquiry to the world of learning and development. The twenty-one workshops in this book are on topics of strategic importance, addressing the desire and need, in our interconnected world, for greater participation and active collaboration in meaning making and resource sharing. Collectively, we have moved beyond data and information collection and knowledge management into new knowledge creation with the imperative to be able to apply new knowledge wisely. These workshops not only deliver positive, new, and wise outcomes, but have the potential to create transformational change at personal, organizational, and societal levels. Appreciative Inquiry as a change methodology is highly impactful in helping us shift how we think, feel, and do business." --Book Jacket.

In order to meet the diverse needs of clients, many therapists are moving toward a more integrated approach to psychotherapy that considers many different theoretical approaches. Integrative Multitheoretical Psychotherapy explores how various theories may be successfully synthesized and describes this new approach by providing an overview of some of the ways in which psychotherapy has become more complex during the latter half of the twentieth century. The text explores how the various theories may be successfully synthesized. Brooks-Harris outlines seven theoretical models (cognitive, behavioral, experiential-humanistic, bio-psycho-social, psychodynamic-interpersonal, systemic-constructivist, and multicultural-feminist) for conceptualizing clients and guiding interventions. These models can be translated into practical skills and implemented with clients.The text's systematic, clearly written approach, combined with numerous figure illustrations, plentiful case studies and examples, highlighted key strategies throughout the chapters, and two summary appendixes, clarify the complex process of theoretical synthesis.

"Few would argue about the benefits of prevention. We all receive messages daily about the importance of a maintaining a healthy diet and body weight, getting enough sleep, practicing safe sex, avoiding the dangers of tobacco, and using alcohol responsibly, to list just a few. All of these efforts are made to ward off physical and psychological ills and to promote personal well-being by maintaining healthy lifestyles now and in the future. Some people will strictly adhere to prevention and health promotion practices, others will ignore them, and most will attempt to follow some of them with varying degrees of success. Prevention science as a professional specialty has goals similar to those of individual, self-directed efforts to promote health. However, prevention science seeks to prevent psychological and physical ills and promote overall health and well-being through evidence-based practices at individual and systemic levels. Therefore, prevention is important because the professional specialty addresses health promotion at individual levels of intervention, as well as through larger social levels of intervention to improve and strengthen health and well-being across society. Prevention is an interdisciplinary specialty that requires conceptual sophistication, research, and policy actions from multiple disciplines, including psychology, counseling, social work, education, health sciences, economics, and public affairs. Given the major advances in prevention in recent years, a major goal of this book is to present in one volume prevention as a specialty in psychology with applicability to other mental health professions. The book is designed to close a gap in the education and training of students, psychologists, other mental health professionals, and those in other professions who desire increased knowledge and training in prevention. The book is a broad-based and resource-rich introduction to prevention, giving attention to interventions and research in different settings across the life span. The content is appropriate for advanced undergraduate and graduate students desiring an introduction to prevention history, theory, research, and applications, and also for professionals who have received little, if any, education and training in prevention"--Introduction.
