Strength-Based Assessment: A Triad of Troubles
Tate, Tom
Reclaiming Children and Youth, v19 n3 p45-52 2010
Traditional diagnosis treats behavior problems as "disorders" in the individual rather than "discord" in relationships. From an ecological perspective, a "problem" involves behavior that hurts self or others. Three global patterns of problems are: Inconsiderate of Others, Inconsiderate of Self, and Low Self-Worth. Strength-based assessment identifies the needs behind these problems and develops restorative interventions.
