When kids are facing a challenge, connecting them to their strengths is one of the greatest supports we can provide. It lets them know we believe in them, and guides them towards capability and resilience.
A Strengths-based approach can support:
greater happiness and engagement at school
higher levels of academic achievement
higher levels of physical fitness
greater resilience (From Waters, 2017)
