The Strengths-based practice framework for professional practice was released in February 2019.
A Strengths-based practice is a social work theory that focuses on people’s strengths and goals rather than their problems. This conference focuses on implementing a Strengths-based approach, and applying the Strengths-based Based Practice Framework for Professional Practice in Adult Social Work.
“A strengths-based approach explores, in a collaborative way the entire individual’s abilities and their circumstances rather than making the deficit the focus of the intervention…. When using a strengths-based approach, risk is looked at as an enabler, not as a barrier.”
