Using Appreciative Inquiry Interviews to Systematically Prevent Abuse and Neglect of America's Children (Workshop 170)
In this workshop, participants will receive an overview of recent research findings related to using Appreciative Inquiry techniques to improve the functioning and vitality of groups and organizations. Participants will learn that Appreciative Inquiry is guided by a strengths-based approach to prevention, engagement, assessment, and intervention and is also a method of helping people succeed by looking at what is working well in a group or organization and building on those successes. Participants will then be engaged in using these techniques by briefly appreciatively interviewing a person in the room who was previously unknown to them.
