Building Strengths and Skills


Oxford University Press

This chapter demonstrates the strengths- and skills-building model — its principles and practice techniques. All examples are drawn from social service work in a hospital setting, leading to the secondary purpose of the chapter — illustrating how the strengths- and skills-building model can be used in medical social service in which the practitioner has few client contacts and focuses on needs assessment, discharge planning, and referral.

Keywords:   medical social work, collaboration, motivation, strengths, hospital, client contacts
