Solution Focused Working with Looked After Children

The solution focused (SF) approach within social work, health and social care, has become a mega-trend over the past 30 years.  SF working with children and young people in care has been demonstrated to be highly effective.  Foster carers and social workers, who have no previous knowledge of psychology, counselling techniques or mental health, have demonstrated their ability to put into practice the 20+ tools & techniques of the SF approach, not only to maintain placements but to enhance their looked-after children’s welfare and development.
