Subject:RE: strengths/competency based measures

Peter – in my experience, most measures are not strengths or competency based, but deficit-based, developed years ago before “strengths-based” was considered. Please let me know what you find for strengths/competency based – I am really interested! The only one I know about right now is the Protective Factors Survey, validated under the direction of FRIENDS NRC from Children’s Bureau. You can find it on the internet. Peggy Margaret (Peggy) L.
