    The strengths perspective is an overarching model that guides theory, research, and professional practice in a field. This approach focuses on identifying and utilizing the strengths and resources of individuals, families, and communities, rather than solely focusing on their problems or deficits. It emphasizes the importance of empowering individuals and promoting their resilience and well-being. By adopting the strengths perspective, professionals can shift their focus from pathology to potential, leading to more effective and positive outcomes in their work.

    Correct Answer
    C. Focuses on discovering how clients have managed to survive in their circumstances.
    Explanation
    The strengths perspective of practice focuses on discovering how clients have managed to survive in their circumstances. This approach emphasizes the client's abilities, resources, and resilience rather than solely focusing on their problems or deficits. It seeks to identify and build upon the client's strengths, skills, and positive qualities to promote empowerment and growth. By exploring how clients have successfully coped with challenges in the past, practitioners can help them harness these strengths to overcome current difficulties and achieve their goals. This approach shifts the focus from a deficit-based perspective to a more positive and empowering one.

    C. Client motivation is fostered through a process of consistent and thorough examination of client problems throughout the helping relationship.
    Explanation
    The strengths perspective does not assume that client motivation is fostered through a process of consistent and thorough examination of client problems throughout the helping relationship. Instead, it focuses on discovering client strengths through a cooperative exploration between the client and practitioner, allowing clients to have the final say in what they need in their lives, and avoiding the tendency to blame clients for their difficulties.

By asking the client to imagine a future where their problems are miraculously solved, it encourages them to think about what they want their life to look like and what steps they can take to achieve that. This helps the client to focus on positive outcomes and develop clear and achievable goals for themselves.

    In solution-focused terms, when a client can identify a day in the past when the problem was not as severe, this is referred to as an exception. It signifies a time when the issue was not as prominent or troublesome, and serves as evidence that change is possible. By focusing on these exceptions, the client can gain insight into what factors or strategies were present during that time, and use them to work towards a solution in the present.

The assessment of client problems may be a separate process that occurs before or alongside solution building, but it is not considered one of the stages in the actual building of a solution.

However, the stages of solution-building themselves are not something that clients' frames of reference rely on.
