Strength Based Approach

“The key to human development is building on who you already are” 

How Does the Concept of Strengths Differ From Other Concepts or Measures of Ability?

 

  1. The concept of strengths is based on each individual’s unique nature and building upon what he or she naturally does best. Traditional concepts and measures of ability (e.g., IQ and aptitude testing) are more global and are not designed to explain what a person can specifically do.

  2. For Youth during school time, The concept of strengths goes far beyond traditional academic skills, ACT/SAT test scores, reading, math skills and composition skills because it identifies the person’s naturally dominant patterns of thought, feeling, and behavior that can be productively applied. On the other hand, strengths are needed and can be applied to academic tasks.

  3. The concept of strengths goes beyond musical, athletic, and artistic talents, yet strengths can be applied in each of these domains.

  4. The concept of strengths begins with the realization that a variety of talents are needed to do something very well. It is unlikely that talents from only one theme will produce excellence. Often, a wide range of many talents, highly developed, all working together and strategically applied is needed to produce excellence.
