We understand and accept that each child has inherent and learned weakness. However, we purposely choose to emphasis a child’s strengths instead of their weakness, their positives instead of their negatives. We also believe that the child and family are active, not passive, participants in their own helping process. We focus on their strengths as a way to foster motivation for growth. We assess their strengths to develop informed, achievable objectives for every plan of care.
Every child and family that comes to Patrick Henry Family Services for help must be empowered to make their own changes that they need to make. That empowerment comes from valuing oneself, having achievable goals, and creating a plan to reach these goals that has the potential to be successful.
Take Away: We understand and accept that each child has inherent and learned weakness but we purposely choose to emphasis a child’s strengths instead of their weakness, and their positives instead of their negatives.
