This self-paced course provides an introduction to the strengths-based approach and questioning cycle. These principles and techniques enhance the quality of interactions and can support individuals to move towards self-sufficiency.
A service delivery approach which builds on individual and community strengths has been adopted by Dandelion House.
This requires a cultural shift with the emphasis changing from a transactional focus to a strengths-based interactional approach.
At a personal level this involves skills of deliberate listening for individual strengths as opposed to looking for a problem or deficit.
The quality of the interaction, as opposed to the length of time spent, is key to bringing about successful outcomes.
At the end of this course you will gain knowledge of:
The strengths-based approach.
The questioning cycle.
Reframe statements/discussion points to create a positive approach towards problems and goal setting by highlighting a participant’s achievements and strengths rather than emphasising the problem.
How to implement these principles and techniques to enhance the quality ofinteractions.
How these approaches can support individuals to move towards self-sufficiency.
