Abstract

Strength-based approach in dealing with persons with psychiatric illness gained more attention in the clinical setting mainly due to its unique way of addressing clients and their issues. It is a way of conceptualising and understanding people and their circumstances from the strength point of view and clinicians try to build-up from the core strengths, towards achieving client's goals. The current article focuses on the utility of strength-based approach in a case with paranoid schizophrenia and tries to bring evidence-based case discussion in this regard.
