Erin Cusanno is doing more of what works. In today’s episode, we talk with Erin Cusanno, Solution-Focused Practitioner, School Counselor (NCC) and Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), about Solution-Focus in School Counseling. Erin shares with us what fascinates her with Solution Focus, how her conversations as school counselor have changed with Solution-Focus ,and what differences this has made for her and her students. Learn how she got in touch with Solution Focus, how she landed in a train-the-trainer course with Brenda Zalter-Minden and Heather Fiske at the SFBTA conference in Santa Fe and what fascinated her back then. Find out how she started using it in her own work as school counselor and how she started to train school administrators and others in her school district and in the community. We talk about how she builds on what works and does more of it, her experiences at the SFU conference and at BRIEF Summer School, and about the mastery and the art of Solution-Focused practice. Erin mentions the importance of acknowledging and honoring it when clients share their struggles, the power of a small step, and the valuable differences that talking with Solution-Focused practitioners can make. And join in the Challenge of the week: „Challenge yourself to take a small step in a direction that feels helpful to you.”
