This chapter aims to provide insights on using the strengths perspective approach to increase self-efficacy and motivation to improve the retention and success of diverse student populations. It will also cover retention and success regarding diverse student populations through the lens of a trauma-informed care approach. It is important to consider the unique challenges that come with the students as they enter the school while learning to be both independent and self-supporting for the first time in their lives. Suppose a student has the challenge of an adverse childhood experience. In that case, it is important for the practitioner to consider this when advising and counseling a student who has come to them with their unique circumstance. Using the strengths approach and positive psychology will be essential to succeed with a student of this background.
