We invite you to join Avril Bellinger and Deirdre Ford to launch their new book 'The Strengths Approach in Practice: How It Changes Lives' at 17:15 on Wednesday 27 April at the University of Plymouth.

The strengths approach is a collaborative practice based on working WITH people rather than doing things for them and can be used in any situation. Students and Refugees Together (START) is an organisation that for 20 years, has provided learning opportunities for students of many disciplines. START continues to exemplify the power of the strengths approach in practice.

Each chapter of this optimistic and transformative book applies the strengths approach to a different sphere including: law and policy, organisational development, management and governance, funding, research, community development, student learning and global challenges. Come and help us to celebrate the publication of this book in START’s anniversary year. 

“This book advances passionate and conceptually sound arguments for practical, philosophical and political applications of strengths approaches to complex social challenges, arguing that there is always something that can be done." (Carole Adamson, University of Auckland)
