2017 Victoria The Drive to Thrive: A Strength-Based Model of Leadership and Service

Eventbrite - The CF Learning Victoria Seminars

Tuesday & Wednesday, April 25 – 26, 2017, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm

The Drive to Thrive is a research-grounded training for professionals who seek to build strengths in young people, enabling them to overcome adversity, learn, grow, and flourish. Content draws from the Model of Leadership and Service, developed by Cal Farley’s, which identifies six areas of innate human need (biosocial drives) that apply equally to leaders, team members, and the children and families we serve. Once these needs are met (safety, belonging, achievement, power, purpose, and adventure), individuals are free to reach their potential and flourish.

The 2-day training will:

* Examine the current mandate for evidence-based practice in light of the principle of consilience.

* Compare and contrast deficit-based and developmental approaches to working with children and families facing difficult challenges.

* Explore research and practical strategies to meet the six biosocial drives (safety, belonging, achievement, power, purpose, and adventure).

* Apply these evidence-based principles to creating transformational change in persons, organizations, and communities.
