Counseling Psychology: An Integrated Positive Psychological Approach introduces a new dimension in counseling psychology by integrating theories and skills on treatment with positive aspects of diverse groups into a comprehensive and integrative approach; in this way, the book guides readers to enhance clients' positive potential, and attend clients' symptoms and strengths, rather than focusing solely on the treatment of clients' negative symptoms. Previous counseling models can often miss why, how, and how far clients go to successfully manage living. Counseling Psychology tackles how clients manage day-to-day living, and how they can thrive despite severe symptoms. Empirical evidence demonstrates that in failing to acknowledge these issues, counseling psychology risks falling short on symptom reduction and relapse prevention. It can also overlook their critical dimensions of hope, resilience, and stamina, and in turn fail to take an overall perspective. This book includes traditional counseling psychology and positive psychology to comprehensively cover varied theories and then enhance students' integration of different theories in counseling.

Finally, as client populations increasingly diversify, the book's integration of traditional counseling approaches with positive psychology enables counselors to tailor integrative counseling to multicultural clients, helping graduate students and mental health professionals become more culturally sensitive in their practice.
