The content will cover:

  • How a solution focused approach supports children in the development of their own solutions to problems.
  • The importance of recognising and acknowledging children’s strengths.
  • How to engage children in the process effectively, including creative ideas for the younger age range.
  • How to tailor the Initial Consultation – including an adapted Information Gathering handout.
  • The importance of setting clear goals and how to measure them effectively.
  • Utilising scaling and the Miracle Question to develop goals.
  • How to communicate with parents, manage their expectations and encourage behaviour that will impact positively on the process.
  • Hypnotherapeutic interventions which can be utilised with children.
  • Different ways children respond during hypnosis and how to manage this.
