Strength-Based Therapy

What is Strength-Based Therapy?

Strength-based therapy is a type of positive psychotherapy and counseling that focuses more on your internal strengths and resourcefulness, and less on weaknesses, failures, and shortcomings. This focus sets up a positive mindset that helps you build on you best qualities, find your strengths, improve resilience, and change worldview to one that is more positive. A positive attitude, in turn, can help your expectations of yourself and others become more reasonable.

What to Expect

Strength-based therapy is talk therapy that guides you toward a retelling of your personal history of traumas, stressors, and pain with more emphasis on yourself as a survivor than as a victim, and more emphasis on your strengths and survival skills than on your weakness. The goal is for you to recognize that you already have the skills and strength to survive and can use those same strengths to deal with tough situations in other areas of your life.

How Strength-Based Therapy Works

Strength-based therapy is a positive and empowering approach that focuses on individuals’ inherent strengths and resources. It involves identifying personal strengths, talents, and past successes, and leveraging these to address current challenges and achieve goals. By reframing challenges positively and setting realistic, strength-based goals, clients build resilience and confidence. The therapist provides ongoing support and encouragement, helping clients recognize and utilize their strengths, fostering a proactive and empowered mindset for handling future challenges.
