Reverence is defined as a sense of awe or profound respect for the person. It has become increasing rare in modern culture, not only in health care, but in education and in corporations, where people are too often treated in a dehumanizing way. This groundbreaking book is the most comprehensive volume to-date that explores in depth the concept of reverence and strengths-based approaches in the psychotherapy healing process as manifested in a wide variety of treatment modalities such as child and play therapy, family therapy, therapeutic assessments, and in training programs. Applications in head start programs and group homes, with both juvenile offenders and traumatized children, are covered in individual chapters along with using a strengths-based, reverent approach with providers.
