The Solution Focused School
Author: Linda Metcalf
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
View: 9028The Field Guide toCounseling Toward Solutions When it was first published in 1995, Linda Metcalf's book Counseling Toward Solutions became an instant bestseller. The book offered a new and positive program for changing individual behavior that helped K-12 students with their own problems and gave them self-esteem in the process. Now, The Field Guide to Counseling Toward Solutions offers school counselors, teachers, and administrators a complete program for changing the way that schools deal with a variety of issues.?From an alternative school program that enlists the power of teacher mentors to the elementary program that involves the teacher, parent, and student in the counseling process, this book shows how to make change happen and how to make it last. The solution-focused approach helps everyone involved to begin their own change process by noticing when a problem does not occur, rather than focusing on the problem or what caused it. It includes information targeted to specific age groups--elementary school students, middle schoolers, and adolescents--because each developmental stage requires a certain perspective and focus in order to collaborate and reach solutions. The Field Guide to Counseling Toward Solutions offers guidelines for developing a school-wide program that encompasses virtually all of the day-to-day programming that schools must provide for students. The book includes techniques and suggestions for: Training staff to become more solution-focused and student-centered Working together with teams, teachers, and parents so that the "system" creates and maintains change Creating support groups for parents and students Reducing special education referrals through solution-focused conversations In this book, bestselling author and veteran school counselor Linda Metcalf offers more than a simple positive strategy or technique--she provides a way to think about school "clients" that can change interactions and guarantee success.

Dort töteten sie zwölf Schüler und einen Lehrer, verletzten vierundzwanzig weitere Menschen und nahmen sich dann selbst das Leben. Es war der schlimmste Schul-Amoklauf der Geschichte. Dylan Klebold war mein Sohn.“ 16 Jahre nach dem Amoklauf ihres Sohnes Dylan erzählt Sue Klebold von ihrem Ringen mit der Frage, ob sie die Tat hätte verhindern können, wenn sie nur aufmerksamer, liebevoller gewesen wäre. Sue Klebold ist durch die Hölle gegangen, aber an der Tat ihres Sohnes nicht zerbrochen. Sie hat einen Weg gefunden weiterzuleben und hofft, anderen Eltern zu helfen, das zu verhindern, was sie selbst nicht aufhalten konnte. Von einem ist sie fest überzeugt: Elterliche Liebe allein reicht nicht aus, um Kinder und Jugendliche vor den Folgen unerkannter psychischer Erkrankungen zu schützen. Ein starkes Memoir einer Mutter, der das Unvorstellbare passiert ist. Sue Klebold spendet alle Einnahmen an Forschung und Hilfsorganisationen für Opfer und Angehörige psychisch Kranker.
