Asset Mapping is a well-recognized approach to clinical and community health, championed by the fields of social work and public health. In the field of medicine, an approach that is focused on disease, deficits, deficiencies, addictions, etc. is the dominant model, leading to interventions that fail to incorporate strengths that could contribute to the care plan. Strength-based approaches to clinical and community health will improve efficacy of interventions, increase student/provider satisfaction with their work, and is a method toward addressing health inequities. In this presentation, we will explore ways that UNM faculty are utilizing this approach in teaching health-professions students.


This presentation was presented during the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center Education Day, 2019.
