This paper aims to stimulate discussion.
The paper is a personal reflection and is not a research paper; there is not therefore a design or methodology that was used in its writing.
While it may initially appear that a strength-based approach is incompatible with safeguarding adults, it can be a valuable long-term tool in supporting adults who have been abused or self-neglected.
The piece is a personal reflection and therefore not based on research but it does highlight the need for further research to develop tools to facilitate the interface between safeguarding and a strengths-based approach.
The need to recognise when a strengths-based approach is and is not appropriate in safeguarding adults.
The author is not aware of a similar consideration of the interface between safeguarding adults practice and a strengths-based approach.
