When We Emphasize Strengths, Possibilities are Endless
There is an increasing focus on the power of considering people's strengths as we support them to live their best lives. We will explore the core concepts of a strengths-based approach to serving others. We will hear from people who have conditions about how they see their own lives, and then we will review the evidence that supports a strengths-based approach. We will practice talking and writing in a way that reflects our focus on strengths while still being responsive to payers and those we serve. Strengths have the power to transform all of us; it's more fun this way!
