Developing a Wellbeing and Strengths-based Approach to Social Work Practice: Changing Culture

A report aimed at social workers that discusses the need to change their workforce culture to one that is 'strengths-based' for promoting wellbeing, early intervention and prevention.

Developing a Wellbeing and Strengths-based Approach to Social Work Practice: Changing Culture offers guidance and practice examples to help councils, providers, partners, and people who use services make this cultural shift in adult social care; it also offers an argument for how such a community-focused approach can deliver efficiencies for the sector.

The report was produced by TLAP with support from Skills for Care, Shared Lives Plus and with case study contributions from Hertfordshire, Essex and Calderdale Council.
