Tailored Support workshop (one-day session)

Local authorities are implementing the concept of strength-based working across the country. This workshop investigates how this movement can be maximised across the wider social care workforce by embedding and cascading the different models in practice.

In this workshop, participants will:

  • Explore what is meant by strengths-based working.
  • Examine the legal and policy context of strengths-based practice and the evidence to support its use.
  • Apply strengths-based models and communication skills.
  • Consider barriers to strengths-based practice and enablers to overcome these.
  • Identify own strengths and create an action plan to progress learning from the day.

Aimed at: Practitioners

Usual timings: 9.30am – 4.00pm
