THE Book!这本书!

I finally bought it — “Character Strengths and Virtues, A Handbook and Classification” by Dr. Christopher Peterson and Dr. Martin Seligman. 

I thought if I want to be serious about coaching through strengths, I need to understand the 24 character strengths a lot more in-depth.  It was not an easy read, especially for non-psychologists, but it certainly contains wealth of information about each character strength.  For each character strengths, Dr Peterson and Dr Seligman described in great details its definition, theoretical traditions, measures, correlates and consequences, development, enabling and inhibiting factors, gender, cross-national and cross-cultural aspects and deliberate interventions.

我终于把它给买了:“性格优点和美德的手册和分类”。作者为克里斯托弗彼得森博士和马丁塞利格曼博士。 

我想,如果我要认真地去实践以优势为基础的辅导,我必须要去好好地作深入性地了解二十四个的性格优点。这本书并不容易阅读,尤其是对非心理学家来说。但,它确实包含了对每一个性格优点的丰富信息。作者对每一个性格优点的定义,理论上的传统,相关性和后果,衍变和发展,促成和抑制的因素,性别,区域性和文化方面,还有蓄意干预方法,都一一作了详细地解说。
