What will participants learn?
Imagineer offers this creative and thought provoking training as a one day workshop on Strengths Based Approaches.
The term Strength Based has been prominent within Community Development for over 20 years. The term underpins a movement which is interested in recognising the elements that make up a community; the people, the places and the resources.
Within Strength Based approaches there is an intention to create a stronger place within the community for everyone through focusing on the strengths that each one of these elements has to offer one another and the local area. To then intentionally bring about connections and opportunities amongst the people, the places and the resources.
During this one day workshop the following will be covered;
Engaging with what is taking place within a local community,
Recognising the places, people and resources that reside within a community,
Methods to map the assets of a community,
Building a rapport with someone and holding conversations that helps to identify their interests, skills, passions and knowledge,
Developing the skill to see opportunities and connections and introducing these in a manner that fits with Self Directed Support,
Overcoming the barriers to achieving a stronger community.
This day will lead to participants feeling inspired and confident to make a difference in the communities where they reside, live and work.
