dc.description.abstract The purpose of this project was to develop a comprehensive workshop manual, by synthesizing existing research related to practical applications of hope-focused counselling skills. Hope-focused counselling requires a conscious decision on the part of the therapist to incorporate hope into counselling sessions. Tools and techniques found to be particularly beneficial when exploring hope with clients were discussed and outlined in this project. Hope-focused counsellors rely heavily on narrative interventions with the goal of improving therapeutic outcomes and increasing client hope by broadening clients’ perspectives when options are limited by feelings of hopelessness. The first part of this project includes an introduction to the study, a comprehensive literature review on hope, applications of hope in counselling, a detailed outline of the manual, project development methods, and a synthesis of the information. The second part of the project is a standalone document, located in the Appendix, consists of a facilitator guide for conducting the workshop, and the Hope Toolbox containing handouts necessary for participation in the workshop. en_US
