Growing the solution-focused approach in statutory social work practice

10/9/2024 14:15 - 15:15

We love to pilot something different in Essex County Council’s children and families service. Following the successful use of solution-focused practice in our edge of care services, the South Essex quadrant embarked on a programme of solution-focused practice training for all workers in all children’s services, to test and learn how it will enhance our current strengths-based, systemic and relationship-based model. 

Let us tell you the story of how we have been doing that and the impact it is having so far.
