The tenth day of Christmas: start with strengths

Why might people vote against the policies and institutions we design to meet their needs? Maybe because meeting their needs, changing their lives, dealing with their deficits, doesn’t necessarily build their self-esteem, capacity or autonomy. It was nice to see “strength-based services” in PolicyLab’s Predictions for 2017. More of this, please.
