- Assume you do not know the upper limits of growth and change that is possible
- Clients are experts and work is client-directed
The Collaborative is to work closely with practitioners and educators in designing, delivering, and evaluating strengths/resiliency-based approaches to human and educational services, achieved through five major programs, each of which has a variety of projects.
