Schools: Putting the solution-focused approach into practice

You can start using the solution focused approach in all areas of your work, with colleagues, students as well as guardians

By repeating and practising social interaction with the following advice, your habits become solution-focused.

The solution-focused approach and putting it into use requires practice and reflecting on situations and one’s own actions. Be easy on yourself if you find that you were not able to act accordingly when communicating. Reflecting on past situations can make you realize something new for the next time. It is also often possible to raise the same matter again and to solve the problem of the previous situation in a solution-focused manner.

The solution-focused approach is always goal and future oriented, based on strengths and communication. Being genuinely solution-focused means acting in a way that makes your own life, your student’s and their guardians’ lives easier - whatever the methods may be.
