Using a Strengths-Based Approach with Children and Youth for Clinicians

Green Clock Hours: 1.00

It is common for clinicians to view clients from a deficit perspective. It is also natural for clients to focus on the problems that are occurring in their lives. However, this focus on problems and deficits can be limiting for both the client and the clinician. Focusing on strengths and helping clients see their own capabilities, while continuing to build upon those strengths, can often result in better outcomes for clients. The goal of this course is to help addictions, behavioral health counseling, case management/care management, marriage and family therapy, nursing, psychology and social work professionals in health and human services settings learn about the benefits of a strengths-based approach as well as how to apply this approach with their clients to promote positive outcomes.
