Strengths Perspective

THE COOLEST PART about today was when I witnessed my first Family Team Meeting. I was privileged to observe an effective team of social workers, a family's support system, and a single parent of six as they worked together to care for two special needs children.

It was the strengths perspective at work. It's a beautiful thing when I am able to see the stuff we are being taught in class as it applies to the real world.

Good night!
