When we approach clients as a helper or collaborator (having specialized
education, tools, and experience to offer, but open to the wisdom,
knowledge, and experience that clients bring with them) we work with
clients rather than on their cases. In the Strengths Perspective, clients’ voices are heard and valued at all levels of intervention, including micro, mezzo, and macro levels, such as in practice with individuals, families, and groups, communities, and in policy advocacy.
