Health care for adolescents needs to include both assessment of risk and identification of strengths. Clinicians need practical ways to identify strengths, or assets, by using a proven framework.

In addition, many will want to go the next step and use this strength-based approach with shared decision-making techniques, including motivational interviewing.
