    Significance of the Article

    • This paper argues for different disciplines (e.g., clinical psychology, counselling, coaching) to be integrated and valued within clinical and non-clinical support processes and intervention planning.  The paper indicates that intervention outcomes (e.g., flourishing) and methods (e.g., positive psychology interventions; PPI’s), drawn from both the positive and clinical psychology literature, can be seamlessly integrated within a common intervention plan. 
    • The paper introduces the intentional practice logic model (Life  Buoyancy Model) as a case formulation planning method to support multi-disciplinary and flexible intervention planning processes. 
    • The article makes the case for intentional practice as an empowerment based process for clinicians, counsellors and coaches (clinical and non-clinical) to work together in shared intent, and draw upon a range of multi-disciplinary intervention components (e.g., PPIs, cognitive behavioural therapy), within a framework of intentionality, evidence and high awareness of intent.
