Abstract

This is an edited publication of twenty seven double blind refereed papers. Strengths Based Practices concentrate on the inherent strengths of individuals, families groups and organisations deploying peoples' personal strengths to aid their recovery and empowerment. Strengths Based Practices are empowering alternatives to traditional methods with individuals, group or organizational work. Strengths Based Practices refrain from allowing crippling, labelling and stigmatized language. Strengths based practices build and foster hope from within by focusing and working with precedent successes. Strengths Based Practices facilitate change by exploring what has worked and what does not work? And what might work immediately in the here and now making it important for facilitators and those desiring change to be integral to this process of change. This volume titled as 'Papers in strengths based practice' is an endeavour to raise the question of how to keep hope and move beyond mere survival to proactive positive change within the practice of social work and human services.
