The Field Guide toCounseling Toward Solutions

When it was first published in 1995, Linda Metcalf′s book Counseling Toward Solutions became an instant bestseller. The book offered a new and positive program for changing individual behavior that helped K–12 students with their own problems and gave them self–esteem in the process. Now, The Field Guide to Counseling Toward Solutions offers school counselors, teachers, and administrators a complete program for changing the way that schools deal with a variety of issues.?From an alternative school program that enlists the power of teacher mentors to the elementary program that involves the teacher, parent, and student in the counseling process, this book shows how to make change happen and how to make it last.

The solution–focused approach helps everyone involved to begin their own change process by noticing when a problem does not occur, rather than focusing on the problem or what caused it. It includes information targeted to specific age groups elementary school students, middle schoolers, and adolescents because each developmental stage requires a certain perspective and focus in order to collaborate and reach solutions.

The Field Guide to Counseling Toward Solutions offers guidelines for developing a school–wide program that encompasses virtually all of the day–to–day programming that schools must provide for students. The book includes techniques and suggestions for:

  • Training staff to become more solution–focused and student–centered

  • Working together with teams, teachers, and parents so that the "system" creates and maintains change

  • Creating support groups for parents and students

  • Reducing special education referrals through solution–focused conversations

In this book, bestselling author and veteran school counselor Linda Metcalf offers more than a simple positive strategy or technique she provides a way to think about school "clients" that can change interactions and guarantee success.
