Ever heard that term ‘strengths-based’ practice but wanted to know more? Ever thought ‘I know what it is but how do I “do” it?’ Ever felt uncomfortable with working within a problem-centred framework and wanted to find a way out?
If you did then a ‘Lunchbox Learning session’ could be for you. These hour-long gatherings will bring together like-minded ethical practitioners looking to explore how to put key ideas and skills into practice.
Join Unique Outcomes’ co-directors David Lees, Amy Stephenson, pAul Montgomery and Andrew Shirres who will each take you through key aspects of strengths-based practice. One of the things UO people have in common is that we ‘earned our stripes’ in the early years of the Strengths based practice revolution, being trained by Wayne McCashen, Di O’Neil and inspired by Russell Deal, founder of Innovative Resources. We’re passionate about embedding social justice, person-centred, empowerment principles into everyday direct service practice.
Andrew will kick things off on May 4 with ‘Doing power-with’ and each month thereafter we will focus on a key SB skill. In July, pAul will lead ‘Engaging in externalising’, Amy will focus on ‘The art of reframing’ in September, and David will end Series 1 of ‘Lunchbox Learning’ in November with ‘Noticing and exploring exceptions’ For more information on each session click here.
