Workshop: Problem free talk and best hopes


john casemore

A presentation to show how problem free talk can focus people with chronic issues to have hope. Using solution focused skills to navigate children and families involved in child protection, drugs & alcohol, domestic violence and offending behaviour towards positive goals. Turning around problem focused thoughts with both clients and other professionals working with the clients as quickly as we can. Embracing the client and trusting them to use their own strengths and resources to solve the issues presented.

I have been working with children and families for over 20 years. I have used solution focused skills throughout my career. My work has been varied from from line child protection, residential children’s homes, youth justice, fostering and adoption and currently as a consultant social worker.

Looking at the underlying principles and approaches with the solution focused therapy model, delivering outcome focused interventions. I present using discussion and reflection around using solution focused skills. We will look at how solution focused skills are used within people work and how this approach empowers the worker and the client.
