A strengths-based approach to care is a collaborative process that draws upon an individual’s strengths and assets and those within their community. Learn how to put this approach into practice and maximise an individual’s independence.

Course content includes:

  • tools and techniques, including asking the ‘right’ questions, three conversations, sign of safety, ROPES and strength mapping
