Strength-Based Approach for Social Change

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter

Abstract

Strengths based Practices (SBPs) build and foster hope from within by focusing and working with precedent successes. SBPs practices facilitate change by assisting to look at / what has worked? What does not work? And what might work presently making it important for facilitators and those desiring change to be integral to this process of change. An important thing to note is that, this approach resonates with the movement in positive psychology, which aims to "catalyse a change in the focus of the psychology from preoccupation with repairing the worst things in life to also building positive qualities." (Seligman & Csikszentmihalyi, 2000, p.5). As a process to usher in social change, the strengths approach is a key to achieving greater levels of personal excellence in each individual that is contributing for his or her growth, the group's development and overall to the significant development of the societies to which he or she belongs.
