Moving away from the usual medical-modeled framework of mental health focused on problems, Strengths-Based Supervision in Clinical Practice by Jeffrey K. Edwards takes a postmodern, social construction approach, looking for and amplifying strengths and encouraging stakeholders to use them. Based on research in brain science, as well as from the Information Age/Connectivity Age thinking, the book reframes the focus of supervision, management, and leadership to one that collaborates and builds on strengths with supervisees as competent stakeholders in their work with their clients.

Drinking from the Same Well is designed for those who seek a praxis-oriented theological grounding in the exploration of cross-cultural perspectives in the field of pastoral care and counseling. It traverses the broad terrain of cultural analysis and also explores in depth a number of discrete cross-cultural issues in pastoral counseling, related to communication, conflict, empathy, family dynamics, suffering, and healing. Cultural analysis and theological reflection are situated alongside numerous case studies of persons and situations that enflesh the concepts being discussed, and readers are invited to engage personally with the material through a variety of focus questions and reflective exercises. This book can serve as a helpful textbook for seminarians and a useful guide for pastors and priests, church study groups, multicultural parishes, and anyone engaged in helping ministries with persons from other cultures. The goal is to develop culturally competent pastoral caregivers by providing a comprehensive and practical overview of the generative themes and challenges in cross-cultural pastoral care.

Wie wirkt sich die Anwendung des nicht-direktiven, personenzentrierten Ansatzes auf uns Menschen aus? Welchen Einfluss haben die Elemente dieses Selbstkonzepts auf unser Miteinander, sowohl in der Therapie als auch in der Dynamik von Gruppen? Mit persönlichen Gedanken, Erfahrungen und Fallvignetten bringt Carl Rogers seine angestrebte lebensbejahende Daseinsform zum Ausdruck: Der Mitbegründer der Humanistischen Psychologie zeigt, was ein ausgeprägter Gemeinschaftssinn, aufgeschlossene zwischenmenschliche Kommunikation und Authentizität systemverändernd für Erziehung, Politik und unser Zusammenleben bedeuten. Den hier versammelten Aufsätzen liegt eine bestimmte Auffassung von der menschlichen Natur zugrunde: Es ist die Überzeugung, dass der menschliche Organismus, das einzelne Mitglied der Spezies Mensch, in seinen Tendenzen im Kern konstruktiv ist. In einem wachstums- und entwicklungsfördernden psychologischen Klima können diese Potentiale freigesetzt werden.
