The CLEAR[TM] Problem-Solving Model: Discovering Strengths and Solutions
Koehler, Nancy; Seger, Vikki
Reclaiming Children and Youth, v20 n1 p16-19 2011
This article introduces a unique team approach to planning and positive behavior support. The young person becomes a key participant in solving problems and setting goals for growth. The CLEAR Team Problem Solving model shifts the focus from deficits to strengths and solutions. The goal is to identify how a child's private logic and interpersonal conflicts serve to maintain maladaptive behavior. Specific interventions are designed to meet the universal growth needs for Belonging, Mastery, Independence, and Generosity. This process values and supports each individual involved and engenders a spirit of hope and optimism.
