Strength-based therapy is a type of positive psychotherapy 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 your best qualities, identify your strengths, improve resilience, and change your worldview to one that is more positive and hope filled. A positive attitude will help you manifest your best life and transform your expectations of yourself and others, while learning to channel Grace and manage your healthy boundaries and expectations.
What to Expect:
Strength-based therapy is talk therapy that guides you toward a reframe of your personal history of traumas, stressors, and pain. It changes the narrative, shifting emphasis onto yourself more as a survivor verses a victim. It shifts emphasis onto your strengths and survival skills and shifts it away from perceived weakness. The goal is for you to recognize that you already have the skills and strength to survive and thrive and that you can call on those skills and strengths to navigate all of the challenging areas of your life.
How It Works: The theory behind strength-based therapy is that through adversity, people discover their inner strengths and build the skillsets to navigate them. How successfully people deal with life's challenges depends on whether they feel they are operating from a position of strength or from a position of deficit. Whether they choose to identify themselves as a victim or as a successful survivor.
