Strengths-Centered Advocacy is a unique approach to providing individualized, strengths-based support to survivors of domestic violence and their children.

The approach was developed by Friendship Home in Lincoln, Nebraska as a way to more intentionally tap into the power of resilience throughout survivors’ healing processes. Through the use of the Gallup Organizations’ Clifton StrengthsFinder and Clifton Youth StrengthsExplorer tools, survivors and their children are given the opportunity to discover their unique personal talents and identify how this information can be applied to their lives in relevant and meaningful ways.

Presented by Julie Havener, Friendship Home’s Coordinator of Strengths-Centered Advocacy, as a part of NRCDV's ACE-DV project, this webinar highlighted the ways in which strengths-centered advocacy can help to mitigate or repair some of the potential negative impacts of domestic violence on children and youth, while also strengthening protective factors that can lead to resilience across the lifespan.
