This report looks at what ‘strengths-based social work’ with adults, individuals, families and communities means for practitioners and people using the services. It is based on a workshop commissioned by the Department of Health and held at the Social Care Institute for Excellence. The workshop included series of presentations and case studies of practice from across England and two group discussions. The group discussions focused on community assets and supporting change within neighbourhoods and strengths-based practice with individuals and families with complex needs or living in complex circumstances. The report captures the key points and comments from the group discussions with summaries of the presentations. (Edited publisher abstract)
