St Luke’s Innovative Resources is delighted to announce the launch of its eLearning platform in May 2018, with its flagship course—Strengths Approach to Practice.
Why do so many people find the strengths approach to practice such a deeply rewarding way to work? Why do they find that it enhances not only their work but also their personal relationships?
Perhaps it is because at the heart of the strengths approach is a simple yet far-reaching belief; all people have strengths and capacities. This fundamental belief not only influences the interaction human service workers have with individuals who access services, but it can also shape the kind of society we live in. Emerging from social justice movements, the strengths approach is committed to creating communities where people’s rights are respected, cultures are celebrated, stories are honoured and every person is seen as a contributor.
Were these the kinds of ideas that inspired you to become a human service practitioner in the first place? Would you like to put these ideas into even more effective practice in your work? If so, then strengths-based training is a great way to build your skills.
Perhaps you have been wanting to attend strengths based training but haven’t found the time or a course that has been offered locally? Do you like learning at your own pace, in the comfort of your own environment? Do you appreciate having the choice to linger over a particular section, or sail through another? Do you enjoy revising at your leisure, with your favourite bottomless cup at your side? Then online learning may be particularly suitable for you.
The Strengths Approach to Practice eLearning course consists of a range of reflective exercises, written material, video and other visual content. We hope that the variety of learning modalities will help create moments of insight and inspiration for you, while also providing you with a range of immediately applicable tools and skills.
How is the course structured?
The Strengths Approach to Practice consists of four modules:
- Module 1 – Introduction to the strengths-approach
- Module 2 – Power-over and power-with
- Module 3 – Strengths-based conversations and the five column tool
- Module 4 – Strengths approach skills
The course concludes with a summary of key ideas.
There are two additional short courses that you can enrol in to extend your learning, or to give you a taste of working in a strengths-based way:
