The Strengths perspective was developed by a group of faculty and doctoral students in School of Social Work, University of Kansas in 1980s. The model presented a paradigm shift, moving from seeing people as with psychological and moral deficiency to viewing them as having their own strengths to encounter life adversities and having capacity to learn, grow and change. The working principles of this model are: Peoples' wants are the focus of the working process; the client is the director of the helping process; the real and genuine client-professional relationship is primary and essential; and the ultimate goal is recovery. The enactment of these principles could facilitate the motivation for change and empower clients. For the past seven years, the authors have been promoting this model in Taiwan, and the growth on both the clients and social workers have been witnessed and documented. The authors summarized and discussed these effectiveness and impact in Taiwan.
