A Multiple intelligences approach to counselling: Enhancing alliances with a focus on strengths

Dr. Mark Pearson

This paper presents the major themes from a qualitative study investigating the experiences of eight Australian counsellors as they introduced Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences (MI) and corresponding interventions into therapy with adult clients, three months after attending a MI training intervention. While research on the application of MI in the field of education has revealed many positive benefits, this study explored possible therapeutic benefits from the introduction of multiple intelligences in the work of counsellors. It has been shown that responding to client preferences can enhance outcomes, and MI provides a practical way to match client preferences to therapeutic treatment.
