Plain English definition
Think Local Act Personal (TLAP) Jargon Buster

When a social worker makes it a priority to build relationships with the individuals and families they work with, as the best way of bringing about the changes people may need in their lives and circumstances. It involves recognising people's potential rather than their weaknesses, and emphasises working with people rather than doing things to them.
