Steve Morgan (Practice Based Evidence) presents: Working with Strengths

Steve has been developing and delivering a Strengths Approach since it was first formally introduced to me by Professor Charlie Rapp in 1991."It has been without doubt the most exciting and influential set of ideas I have experienced throughout a long and varied career; and expanded further through my reading around the Gallup organisation strengths literature."

Steve now offers FREE access to ideas that will help you identify and work with your own strengths. Whether it is our own personal development, or that of others around us, it shouldn’t be a secret as to how we can become more of who we really are.

Need to search for published evidence? Want to do it well? These e-learning modules are for you!

Designed to help healthcare staff and students (clinical and non-clinical) build confidence to search published literature for articles and evidence relevant to their work, study and research. The modules are short (each taking no more than 20 minutes to complete) and may be ‘dipped into’ for reference, or completed to obtain a certificate. There are seven modules suitable for novice searchers and those wishing to refresh their knowledge. 

The first three are available now:

Free access, no login required (NHS OpenAthens login is optional) unless you want a certificate!
