March 18 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
About this Event
Speaker: Jill Manthorpe, Professor of Social Work and Director of the NIHR Health & Social Care Workforce Research Unit at King’s College London
In recent years there has been an increased interest in the implementing a strengths-based approach in adult social care. Partly driven by the imperatives of the Care Act, and partly by the wider aspirations of delivering a more personalised adult social care service, a wide range of different approaches and methods have been applied.
This webinar will explore:
• The policy context of strengths-based approaches, including the current context of a post COVID- 19 world;
• The range of theoretical approaches that are utilised under the strengths-based approaches;
• The implications these have for day to day practice across the range of different roles and services within adult social care;
• Messages from research regarding the evaluations of embedding strength based approaches.
