Gingerich, Wallace J.; Wabeke, Todd
Children & Schools, v23 n1 p33-47 Jan 2001
Describes the use of solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) for working with children who present with mental health problems in the school setting. SFBT eschews a pathology-based model of mental health, focusing instead on the client's strengths and desire to change. Describes the techniques and application of SFBT and discusses the prevalence of child mental health problems. (Contains 46 references.) (Author/GCP)
