Reconsider many of the assumptions and treatment approaches of the DSM/ICD paradigm as you are introduced to a positive, developmental, and resilience-promoting treatment perspective, the Resilience-Focused Counseling & Consultation (RFC&C) process. The mental health field has moved increasingly toward a biomedical paradigm focused upon diagnostic labeling and symptom-reducing interventions. RFC&C represents a "Copernican Shift” in counseling & therapy, an alternative approach that serves to clarify the role of personal coaching. Practical strategies and techniques for assessing and conceptualizing client concerns from a resilience-focused, wellness perspective will be presented and demonstrated. In addition, effective intervention techniques for facilitating positive growth and change through coaching as well as more in-depth mental health counseling services will be presented and demonstrated. Ethical issues in respecting boundaries between coaching interventions and professional mental health counseling will be addressed.
