About this 1 day workshop

You will explore a solution focused approach to conversations between children, staff, and parents where additional support is needed to boost success.

You will also access many skills in a well structured model that moves beyond quick fixes to create sustainable change.

Building on your existing skills, the workshop will show you how to tap directly into the child’s own resources, generate motivation plus build optimism and collaboration for positive change.
