Become a Certified
Solution Focused Counseling & Climate Specialist!
What is Solution Focused Counseling?The basic concepts regarding solution focused counseling are to focus on the strengths and abilities of the individual when a problem is presented. For those who work in schools, this strategy can be applied to students, parents and staff members. By learning to focus more on what works and re-describing deficits, solutions become more possible and individuals are encouraged rather than discouraged.
