Reply To: Homework Week 2 (Wellness and Recovery Promotion)

Amy Mihill

I appreciated this exercise as I was able to recognize personal strengths that I never really considered as strengths and ways that my life has improved over the course of time in many areas. Also, after considering different positive domain areas and ways that I have progressed toward meeting different life goals, I felt less overwhelmed and better able to imagine ways that I might improve my health-an area that needs some attention.

I have discussed client’s strengths when doing comprehensive assessments with them, but didn’t spend as much time focusing on their strengths as I will going forward. I will definitely spend more time encouraging clients to reflect on and discuss what they feels is going well in their lives (strengths) and what past accomplishments they have achieved before discussing their goals.
