A highly interactive one-day workshop. Everyone has strengths. Our qualities, capacities, relationships, values, stories, experiences, skills and material resources can all be strengths. But sometimes, 'The Problem' can be all-consuming, keeping us stuck and creating barriers to change. Strengths-based practice keeps the focus squarely on identifying, mobilising and celebrating strengths.The principles and skills of strengths-based practice include:Values and beliefs of the strengths approach; How 'Power Over' can occur and working towards 'Power With'; Creating conditions for change; Using the 5-column approach to implement plans; and key strength approach skills such as externalising, scaling, reframing and normalising.
