This course is similar to the Introduction to Complex Trauma and Trauma Informed Care course for frontline staff but is aimed specifically at operational and senior managers.
Strengths-Based Practice: an introduction
This course will teach delegates how to incorporate Strengths-Based values and principles into their work; it will enable them to recognise, and build on, the strengths of the people they work with. The course will help delegates to develop practical next steps to make existing processes and practice more Strengths-Based. The session will also look at common misconceptions about the approach and how to challenge and overcome them.

- Frontline homelessness workers with little experience in the field
- Staff from other sectors who have direct client contact

- Be able to recognise deficit based practice
