Empowerment perspective has been one of the major social work treatment models since 1990. In the West, there have been some developments on the strategies and tactics of empowerment; whereas, there is a lack of systematic inquiry and analysis on empowerment practices in Taiwan. Thus, the investigator focused on the social workers in the areas of psychiatric service, partner abuse, and general welfare service to collect the narratives on how they successfully empowered their clients. Moreover, this study explored the special features of empowerment strategies under the context of Chinese culture. Totaled 25 social workers were interviewed, and the open coding was conducted in accord with the three levels of ecological system: individual, interpersonal, and social political. As a result, 16 strategies and 38 tactics of empowerment were extracted. These social workers presented bountiful and plural strategies and tactics on the individual level and have developed some practice wisdom to fit in the Chinese culture. Nevertheless, only few extended their empowerment practice to the social political level. Based on these findings, the investigator constructed a conceptual framework of empowerment practice, which is based on strengths perspective and emphasizes on group work. Future development and utilization on empowerment practice were discussed.
