Strength-Based Approaches

Upcoming Strength-Based Approaches

Date & Time of Course

  •  27 June, 2024
     10:00 am - 4:30 pm


In the demanding and impactful roles you have within the voluntary sector, building collaborative and empowering relationships is fundamental.

Many traditional approaches to Support Work focus on problems and deficits.  While this can be helpful for identifying needs, it can also leave individuals feeling disempowered and labelled.

Strengths-Based Approaches shift the lens to individuals’ strengths, skills, and resources, recognising that people are more than their challenges and have the potential to drive their own journeys towards positive change.  By building on existing strengths, we can empower people to set and achieve their own goals, fostering their sense of agency, resilience, and self-determination.

This new 1-day course will support you to develop Strength-Based Approaches within your role.  The course will also consider how this  aligns with a psychologically-informed environments framework (PIE), and trauma-informed practice.

Strengths Based Approaches offer a change in perspective that foster collaborative relationships, and increase hope, opportunities, confidence, wellbeing, and the client’s perceptions of their own abilities.

This course will support you to:

  • develop your understanding of the core principles of Strengths-Based Approaches
  • explore practical tools and techniques
  • build collaborative and empowering relationships with the people you support
  • expand your use of strengths-based language and curious, exploratory, and hope-inducing questions
  • develop your skills in identifying and fostering the strengths within individuals, even amidst adversity
  • consider professional boundaries when implementing Strengths-Based Approaches
  • discover how this approach complements the PIE framework, and trauma-informed practice

Who should attend?

Suitable for anyone who works closely with adults and young people.




This 1-day course will be delivered on 27 June 2024.

Please note, this online course (Zoom) will not be recorded.



This course is also available in-house, and prices start from £798 for up to 16 people.  This can be a cost-effective way of training staff and can be tailored to best meet the needs of your organisation.
