Strength Based Approach

Workshop Description

Even though “strengths-based” is a familiar term among youth workers, we can often be confused about what the kaupapa actually is and how we know we’re practicing in a way that enhances the mana of young people and their whānau.
This session will:
1) Briefly summarise and redefine ”strengths-based” practice
2) Build upon your existing strengths-focused and mana-enhancing approaches
3) Offer some new ways of reframing your language
4) Provide new skills and frameworks for creating change and hope with young people.
