Three Consecutive Days 09:30-4:30pm daily.
As a worker in the helping industry there can be many invitations to become “problem” focused in our work. This 3 day workshop invites participants to step away from “the doing”, to (re)-connect with the principles and beliefs of strengths-based practice. Participants will have an opportunity to be invigorated in their strengths-based practice.
A five stage map for client-directed change will be explored. The workshop will explore how we can assist clients to define issues in ways that separate them from “the problem” to open the door to more constructive ways of responding. Participants will have the opportunity to identify how to offer acknowledgements with clients to enable a sense of connectedness and recognition, despite the struggles they may face. This workshop explores strengths-based planning in partnership with clients. Particular attention will be paid to how to develop concrete and measurable goals that enhance client’s experience of small successes.  Conversational tools will be offered to enable client’s to stay more connected to their own strengths, skills, knowledge and intentions. These tools seek to enable clients to sustain the preferred changes they are making in their lives. A range of practice stories will be shared to demonstrate how these ideas could translate into various practice settings. The workshop will be experiential and interactive: Participants will have a chance to “have-a-go” at various strengths-based skills throughout the workshop.
