While working with Claudia and her family, I would apply strengths-base practice and empowerment theory. According to Kirst-Ashman & Hull (2015), strengths perspective is an orientation focusing on client resources, capabilities, knowledge, abilities, motivations, experience, intelligence, and other positive qualities that can be put in use to solve problems and pursue positive changes. Identifying the family’s strengths can empower them to continue to work towards their intervention plan and ensure that they know the importance of utilizing community resources. Empowering the family to utilize resources and services offered by the social worker and agency will help the family that the social work is there to help them and are not trying to work against them. The social worker can establish good rapport with the family by being consistent, good communication skills, and ensuring that the services are there to help the family. While the social worker worked with Claudia, she utilized positive verbal support and encouragement, validation, and reflection, and affect identification and exploration (Plummer, Makris, & Brocksen, 2014).
