Taking a strength-based approach to tough times – what have you experienced?
At times ‘Strength-based’ is a buzzword, largely misunderstood, and badly executed… However, it is also a positively different way to approach tough times, such as homelessness.
When we refer to strength-based, we aren’t just talking about focusing on a person’s hobbies or interests. We are talking about walking alongside someone during a tough time, being led by what is important to them, working with them to identify their strengths, and then supporting that person to utilise them or build on them so that they can achieve what they want to achieve.
We would like to hear about your experiences of working in this way. Did you face any barriers? Did anything get in the way?
Whatever your experience we want to hear it. What you share will be used to build on our future work; to help us understand the barriers people may face when working in a strength-based way. Once complete Wisdom from Strength-based Working will be published and shared as an influencing tool to decision-makers.
All experiences captured will be shared anonymously and any identifying details removed. If you would prefer not to be included in the final publication, but would still like to contribute, then please make it clear when you share your experience.
You can contribute using whatever method you feel comfortable with, whether that’s using the form below, via email, phone, WhatsApp, social media – whatever suits you!
