Training Full Description

Training Title:
Strengths-Based Assessment and Planning

Clock Hours: 1.5

At the completion of this course, you should be able to: • Identify at least three differences between strengths-based and traditional, medical-model approaches to assessment and planning • Identify seven major sections or areas of focus for strengths-based assessment and planning • Demonstrate the differences in diagnostic focused and strengths-based questioning for assessment purposes • Describe the differences in the kinds of interventions one might use in strengths-based versus traditional models of recovery planning • Identify at least three major considerations for effectively implementing a strengths-based approach to assessment and planning

The purpose of this course is to introduce you to a very different approach to assessment and treatment, care or service planning – one that is recovery-oriented and strengths-based, one that focuses on quality of life rather than symptom elimination. You will learn to look for how your clients want their lives to be different; what strengths they currently possess to help them get there; what skills or resources they need to get there; how to design a working plan to guide both of you in moving toward those different (or “recovered”) lives. Keywords: Strengths, recovery, person-centered, client-centered, recovery movement, mental health, mental illness, assessment, treatment plan, plan, evaluation, service plan, hope, empowerment, mental health consumer movement, objectives, barriers, goals, Skypek
