Abstract

Depression has long been a problem in our society. In this paper, the writer tries to contrast a disease orientation and a strengths perspective in helping an adolescent with depression. The strengths perspective advocates identifying needs and ability behind client’s symptoms and deficits; nurturing individuals’ positive mood and hope to recovery; establishing enlightening encounter between worker and client; and developing positive coping in working with individuals with depression.
