Using Solution-Focused Brief Counseling in the Elementary School: A Case Study
Gatlin, Tonia; Bryant, Necole
Georgia School Counselors Association Journal, v23 p53-57 2016
This paper reflects the author's views on using a solution-focused approach at the elementary school level. A solution-focused approach emphasizes problem solving and highlights the strengths and positives of students. A solution-focused approach is also recognized for creating solutions for clients or students in a limited amount of time. Some key components of the solution-focused approach beneficial to elementary school students are goal setting, the miracle question, scaling, cheerleading, and the message. This paper will examine how each of these components were used in a case study of a fifth grade student.
