4.0 out of 5 stars A very useful guide to solution-focused counselling in schools, 16 Mar 2012
This review is from: Brief Intervention for School Problems: Outcome-Informed Strategies (Guilford School Practitioner) (Paperback)
I found this a very interesting and practical introduction to a solution-focused way of working with children and young people in schools. There are some very good ideas about how to work, and I imagine that school counsellors will find a lot of resources here to help them reflect on, and develop, their practice. Alongside/as part of the solution-focused emphasis, there is also a strong emphasis on collaborative working with clients, parents and teachers -- with a very helpful discussion of how outcome and process measures can be used to facilitate this process. It all points towards a very coherent and informed way of working with clients, with some good evidence that this can be of help. The one downside that I found to the book was that it was all, perhaps, a little too positive. It was great to read about success stories, but I also would have liked to have known more about difficult cases or where the approach wasn't so succesful.
