    The Wonder of Wonderfullnesses

    The Wonder of Wonderfullnesses

    Parents often come in upset about their child/teen and have concerns and complaints that can veer you toward problem focused land. By inquiring about their child/teen’s wonderfulnesses the conversation will get you on the path to solutions and improve the parent-child relationship in the process. This podcast will provide steps for you, too, so you discover the wonderfulnesses that you possess as well. This podcast was inspired by the book, Narrative Therapy in Wonderland: Connecting with Children’s Imaginative Know How- Norton Publishers (2016) Epston, Marsten and Markham.

    Becoming a solution focused genius

    Becoming a solution focused genius

    Something is changing around us- in a good way! This podcast shares two real life cases where students surprised their teachers and counselor. The opportunities to amplify changes are sometimes hidden, but becoming a solution focused genius who sees beyond how a student or teacher is labeled gets easier with a new lens. Hear some ideas for amplifying new actions and take to heart the idea that noticing and being curious creates change. Tune in for words to say that give you a chance to make someone’s day. Doing that...will also change yours. Join me at the Free SF Connection webinars this spring by registering at https://solutionfocusedschool.com

    Solution Focused +Narrative Therapy=More Possibilities Ahead!

    Solution Focused +Narrative Therapy=More Possibilities Ahead!

    This podcast gently adds some narrative therapy magic to the action oriented solution focused approach when working with school clients who seem overcome by situations. The SFNT model offers a slight detour off path, so the school client can express concerns in a way that shares their values with the counselor. Learn how the models became intertwined and evolved into my book, Solution Focused Narrative Therapy( Springer, 2017). Register at solutionfocusedschool.com for free bi-monthly webinars
