A fresh, dynamic approach to build on students' strengths and encourage positive mental health.

Solution-focused brief counselling helps students improve their well-being by concentrating on goals and solutions rather than dwelling on problems. This resource shows how to use this highly effective approach for group counselling sessions so that students can dialogue and learn alongside their peers.

Research-based and practical, this unique guide gives school professionals the foundational theory and knowledge to adapt solution-focused group counselling techniques for any topic, curriculum, or grade level. Readers will find:

- Case studies of real students encountering real problems

- Forms, permissions slips, and sample letters for starting a group

- "Do This" and "Avoid This" sections

- Sample agendas for elementary, middle, and high school levels, complete with activities, session scripts, and discussion questions

Help students address common issues by creating lively, engaging group meetings using this powerful, goal-oriented methodology.
