“What really fascinates me the most is how solution-focused practices act as a second language.”

“Solution-Focused Practice is much more like teaching than traditional therapy. There is a much smaller gap between what we know about good teaching [and Solution Focused Practice].“

“We had to start with some basic concepts and tie it to who they already were as people and get them started. Then it’s like a snowball rolling down a hill. It got bigger and bigger without necessarily a lot of participation on my part. So, to watch that transformation was really rewarding.”
