Individuals who have been tortured have lost their power during their experiences. The right to stop pain, make choices, and direct one's life are taken away during torture. Using strengths-based approaches, providers can prevent taking their power away again. We can recognize that they are the expert in what they need; they have all that is necessary to survive; and that the power to grow is innate within them. In this webinar we'll discuss some of the theory and methods behind strengths-based care.
After participating in the Webinar participants will be able to:
1) Describe the theory and methods used in strengths-based care.
2) Recognize how strengths-based approaches can inform their own interactions with their clients
