What a strengths-based approach means in practice

09:45 - 11:00

Strengths-based practice is a social work theory that focuses on people’s strengths and goals rather than their problems. It has gained increasing popularity over the last few years, particularly with the inclusion of strengths-based principles and requirements in the Care Act 2014. In this practice-focused session, you will learn:

  • What is meant by strengths-based practice
  • How to use the strengths-based model in your practice
  • The role of co-production, community and care technology in strengths-based practice
