Abstract:

This is the first book that sets out the foundations of Strengths-Based Nursing Care (SBC) as an approach to practice to promote health and facilitate healing for persons and families. It is also the first practical guide for nurses on how to incorporate the knowledge, skills, and tools of SBC into everyday practice. The text builds on and further develops concepts in a model developed by the prestigious McGill University Nursing Program. SBC signifies a paradigm shift in nursing care from a model based on problems, deficits, and pathology to an approach to care that focuses on individual, family, and community strengths as a cornerstone of effective nursing care. The testimony of 46 nurses demonstrates how SBC can be effectively used in multiple settings across the lifespan. The book develops the theoretical foundations underlying SBC, promotes the acquisition of fundamental skills needed for SBC practice, and offers specific strategies, techniques, and tools for identifying strengths and harnessing them to facilitate healing and health. According to the SBC model, the text describes how one becomes a nurse through retraining the senses, developing observation skills, and reforming interpersonal and communication skills for clinical judgment and decision-making. The text includes an instructor's guide. Author Laurie Gottlieb has been the recipient of the prestigious Centennial Award of the Canadian Nurses Association, the only award to recognize the 100 most influential nurses in Canada. Key Features: Provides the first complete, foundational, and practical textbook on Strength-Based Nursing Care; Teaches how to identify, engage, and nurture existing and new strengths to enhance health and healing; Integrates testimony and clinical insights from 46 nurses using SBC in clinical practice; Emphasizes clinical and critical inquiry, clinical grasp and judgment, decision-making, and evidence-based practice.--
