I want to affect change – Solution Focused talking in all social work
Often the sheer amount and variety of duties, roles and tasks for a social worker can become the focus of the day to day. But what if we could re-centre on social work being a talking intervention in itself, that our interactions with our clients affects and leads to change, however small or big.
And what if we said Solution Focused approach is a technique and skill that can do that? Would you want to know more?
Solution Focused is a practice model and approach to practice that’s perfectly aligned to statutory social work. Solution Focused therapeutic social work helps to create change, elevate hope and amplifying success with those we work with.
This masterclass will give you some skills to talk in a Solution Focused way for frontline social workers in all areas, whether you have 10 minutes to talk, one hour visit or dealing with crisis on a phone call. We will talk about how Solution Focused is perfectly twin tracked alongside statutory duties, risk management, assessment, and allows social workers to invite change through talking. We will re-light or fuel that spark for being agents of change, social worker interventionists, through Solution Focused talking.
