Workshop: Discovering Strengths Based Practice

Date: 5th July 2019

Time: 9.45am – 4pm

Venue: The Spring Bank Community Resource Centre, Springbank Way, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. GL51 0LG

Notes: Free parking is available on site.

This workshop will develop your understanding and confidence to implement strength-based practice in care and support settings. During the workshop participants are invited to reflect on what it really means to take a strengths-based approach in practice. The workshop will also consider how can organisations support their frontline care and support staff to take this approach and the difference it can make to people, organisations and communities.

This workshop is aimed at professionals working in care, support and related sectors. It will be relevant to practitioners seeking to apply the approach, frontline managers and strategic leads supporting their staff to practice in a strength-based way and commissioners and clinicians who want to understand strength-based approaches.

By the end of this workshop you will have:

  • Developed an understanding of the core tools and underpinning theories to strength-based practice in care and support.
  • Considered how organisations can support (or get in the way) of strength-based practice
  • Reflected on your own practice and how you can apply this approach in your context.
