Professional Development Workshop Series Presents: 

Solution-Focused Counseling in Schools 


John Murphy

This session describes practical strategies of solution-focused counseling. Participants will learn techniques for quickly identifying students’ best hopes from counseling, asking questions that elicit students’ strengths and resources, monitoring progress in practical ways, and responding to so-called resistant students and caregivers in ways that engage their investment and motivation.
