"This second edition contains substantive new material including stories from practice, reflective exercises for students and seasoned practitioners alike, expanded discussions about strengths, ‘power-over’ and ‘power-with’, social inclusion, reforming, narrative therapy, the strengths-based mind map and column approach, strengths-based supervision, client-owned recording and much more. It puts ‘parallel practice’ squarely on the agenda, challenging organisations to embed strengths-based, socially-just ways of working at every level of their operations, and providing the frameworks to do so." -- Back cover.
