Asset-Based Development for Child and Youth Care
Rose, Hilary A.
Reclaiming Children and Youth: The Journal of Strength-based Interventions, v14 n4 p236-240 Win 2006
An asset-based approach is being championed by the field of child and youth care work, focusing on strengths as opposed to weaknesses, assets as opposed to deficits. This article highlights the Search Institute's theoretically-based and empirically-supported model of developmental assets (Benson, Leffert, Scales, & Blyth, 1998; Scales, Benson, Leffert, & Blyth, 2000; Scales & Leffert, 2004) as a basis for interventions in the context of child and youth care.
