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. After eliciting the strengths, clinicians must be ready to help adolescents recognize and build on them. In addition, many will want to go the next step and use this strength-based approach with shared decision-making techniques, including motivational interviewing.
