Strengths Approach Workshops and Training

We believe that the strengths approach applies to all levels of work; enhancing, developing and sustaining organisational culture, from direct service delivery through to administration and management structures.

We know how important ongoing professional development is—that’s why we offer a range of training packages, In-Person at Our Place or Yours, or Online. Please see our current Training Calendar for the ‘Our Place’ events currently scheduled. Any of our training packages can be delivered at ‘Your Place’, with format and content negotiated with you. Group registrations are also available to organisations for our Online courses.

Contact Us to discuss the training needs of your organisation.

Is our training accredited?

Strengths Approach to Practice is the foundation for the resources and training developed and offered by Innovative Resources, and is endorsed by both the Australian Counselling Association and Australian Association of Social Workers.
