Synopsis: This presentation will review the advantages of strength-based practice and the emerging regulations requiring positive approaches to prevention and recovery. Findings from a study of current practice reveal that there is a gap between the theory and the application of this perspective. This study aims to operationalize within-child strengths to determine which characteristics best discriminate between typically developing children and those children referred for social, emotional, or behavioral concerns, and which strengths are most useful in planning for children's well-being.
