Too often in practice, there is a tendency to pathologize clients, requiring a diagnosis as part of the helping relationship. Suppose, however, that most of the client problems that social workers encounter have more to do with the vagaries of life and not with what clients are doing wrong. This powerful idea is the philosophy behind the strengths-based approaches to social work. This groundbreaking practice handbook takes this concept one step further, combining the different strengths-based approaches into an overarching model of solution-oriented social work for greater impact. The strengths perspective emphasizes client strengths, goal-setting, and a shared definition of positive outcome. Solution-focused therapy approaches ongoing problems when they have temporarily abated, amplifying exceptions as solutions. This natural but rarely explored pairing is one component in the challenging and effective practice framework presented here by the authors, two seasoned practitioners with over 50 years of combined experience. By integrating the most useful aspects of the major approaches, a step-by-step plan for action emerges. With this text in hand, you will: - Integrate elements from the strengths perspective, solution-focused therapy, narrative therapy, and the strategic therapy of the Mental Research Institute (the MRI approach) into an effective and eclectic framework - Build and practice your skills using case examples, transcripts, and practical advice - Equip yourself with the tools you need to emphasize clients' strengths - Challenge the diagnosis-first medical model of behavioral health care - Collaborate with clients to get past thinking (first-order change), and more to acting "outside the box" (second-order change) - Learn to work with a wide variety of clients, including individuals, groups, and families; involuntary clients; clients with severe mental illness; and clients in crisis For any student or practitioner interested in working with clients towards collaborative and empowering change, this is the essential text.

Tom Brokaw called them The Greatest Generation, these veterans of World War II. They were the young innocents who left their farms, their small towns and big cities to engage in the most devastating war the world has ever seen. A war that would forever change their lives, as it would the world, and, most of all, the United States. Perpetuation is the story of how three families, specifically their three sons and their friends, made the transition from their Irish Catholic roots in Astoria, New York, to the battlefields of Europe and then home to the uncertainty of civilian life in the aftermath of this terrible war. Three childhood comrades, Mike McCann, Tom Finn and John Kelly, along with their families and friends provide an interwoven story of love, hate, danger and, most of all, the passion of people striving to succeed in a post-war environment.

Honed by poverty, harsh weather and the bitterness of British rule, Ireland’s children left their native land by the tens of thousands at the turn of the century. This is the story of the Finns, the McCanns and the Kellys, three families who battle their way from the New York City ghetto to the respectability of Astoria, Long Island. As their prosperity grows, so too does a fierce love for the country that took them in and gave them opportunity to be free of the degradation of poverty.

It's not every day you encounter a woman who has been on Earth 150 years who wants you to travel across the Galaxy to solve an urgent problem which involves seventy star systems. Tom Williams hadn't planned to go anywhere. He was content to explore his forest where he recently found a Galactic Exploration and Research Intelligence which he named GERI. GERI was able to become invisible which was helpful when DARPA and NASA came asking questions about odd things happening in the Kuiper Belt.

Despots who despise God rule over a world where evil is good and good is evil. Criminals are called freedom fighters, and children are the victims of acts spawned from depraved minds. Sin is a word relegated to ancient history. prayers of one faithful woman enough to start an outpouring of the Holy Spirit in a worldwide battle for the souls of the unsaved? Will His people arise from a deep spiritual sleep and heed His call? reach the unredeemed. Will their Spirit-filled efforts produce a major harvest of souls before the shout of the archangel and the trump of God?
