This course will explore didactically and experientially the tenets, assumptions and techniques of Solution-Focused work with these specific populations.
Solution work with children and adolescents is similar in the posture we hold towards the adult: taking a collaborative stance, assuming competency and good intentions, seeing the child as an expert of his/her life, taking a not-knowing posture and allowing the client to generate their own solution as much as possible. The difference lies in deciding which 'tools' to use, how to make them fit the child's needs, and in becoming creative.
