Children enjoy the positive feelings that come with mastery, especially around tough situations at home and at school. In light of their playful nature and proven efficacy, Solution Focused Therapy techniques are particularly appealing to them, easy to learn, and to teach.

Once again, we see Sam Steen help a young client problem-solve by masterfully using the miracle question, scaling, and seeking exceptions to the problem. By integrating these techniques into your own work with children, they will grow in confidence and competence solving problems at home, in school, and on the playground.
