Using Solution Focused Brief Therapy in Individual Referrals for Bullying
Young, Sue; Holdorf, Gail
Educational Psychology in Practice, v19 n4 p271-282 Dec 2003
The authors work in a city local education authority Special Educational Needs Support Service with an Anti-Bullying Project that continues to develop effective approaches to dealing with bullying in schools. This paper describes the project's use of Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) and reports on the outcomes of a large number of interventions, particularly with pupils of secondary school age. The support group approach, developed within this project and published in "Educational Psychology in Practice," is referred to in the government's anti-bullying pack as a key strategy. The authors show that SFBT provides another effective strategy to support pupils vulnerable to bullying in both primary and secondary schools. (Contains 1 figure.)
