Support that Makes a Difference
Strength-based practice is goal oriented. The central and most crucial element of any approach is the extent to which people themselves set goals that they would like to achieve in their lives. The primary focus of our work is not on problems nor deficits. The individual is supported to recognize the inherent resources they have at their disposal which can be used to counteract any difficulty or condition.
These methods will be different for each of the strengths-based approaches. Each solution focuses on the clients and the coach will assist to help set goals before the identification of strengths. We aim to increase healing and hopefulness within the client. Furthermore, hope can be realized through strengthened relationships with people, communities, and culture. I collaborate with my clients, for they are the experts of their own lives and my role is to provide options that may encourage clients to make their own decisions and informed choices.
We work together to determine an outcome that draws on the individual's strengths. We concentrate on the inherent strengths of my clients, their families, groups, and organizations, that will help them deploy personal strength to promote healing and empowerment. In essence, we focus on the whole personal health and well-being, to promote healing, positivity, growth focus on self-management of trauma, and working together to achieve better outcomes. Our goal is to identify and build upon the strengths and capacities of each client, so that they may problem solve and deliver their own solutions.
