Dr. Dunn will present "When we Emphasize Strengths, Possibilities are Endless."

Abstract:  There is an increasing focus on the power of considering people's strengths as we support them to live their best lives. We will explore the core concepts of a strengths based approach to serving others. We will hear from people who have conditions about how they see their own lives, and then we will review the evidence that supports a strengths-based approach.  We will practice talking and writing in a way that reflects our focus on strengths while still being responsive to payers and those we serve. Strengths have the power to transform all of us; it's more fun this way!
