Affirmations are statements that emphasize service users’ strengths and reflect a sincere appreciation for who they currently are. Contrary to popular belief, affirmations are not the same as compliments. Compliments typically begin with “I” while affirmations begin with “you.” For example, a compliment is, “I think you are demonstrating great determination to overcome your addiction because you showed up to the appointment today and you refuse to give up.” An affirmation is, “You are demonstrating great determination to overcome your addiction because you showed up to the appointment today and you refuse to give up.”
While affirmations can help build a service user’s self-confidence to change, they can also have the opposite effect if a service user believes that the affirmations are not genuine. Therefore, it is important to get to know the service user and use affirmations that accurately capture their strengths.
