The Centre for Community Child Health will host a seminar on Monday 17 October exploring how to support families and build capacity using a strength-based approach.
The seminar will provide an overview of what it means to take a strength-based approach and why it is important to the early years sector. An interactive workshop and practical examples from current initiatives will examine some of the challenges we can face in working with more vulnerable children and families, and how we can improve our engagement with families through a strength-based approach.
