This practice activity demonstrates how to use the VIA Character Strengths online survey to help a young person assess their strengths.
This practice activity will help you:
- understand the role of online self-assessments
- complete a character strengths assessment with a young person
- use the results of the survey to guide work with a young person.
Whilst many services reference using a strengths-based model when working with young people, how often do we assist the young people we work with to formulate a comprehensive list of strengths? In this activity, we can assist a young person to do so, using online tools and the professional relationship.
