The Pre-Conference: Linda Metcalf, Presenter


The pre-conference will cover a lot of information in six hours!

The morning will consist of demonstrations of the solution focused basics as they specifically apply to the school setting, in all grade levels. If you are a clinician, the ideas you will learn can be applied to any clinical issue.

You will see videos and hear multiple case studies that were assisted by the solution focused approach. Issues including:


school refusing





oppositional behaviors

There will be LOTS of practice through role playing and interactive conversations. You will be walking and talking the solution focused approach when you leave! The pre-conference is for ALL educators in all schools and all cliniicans in private practice, agencies and psychiatric hospitals.

The afternoon will consist of planning how to implement the ideas of the solution focused approach and climate into your school, agency or practice. Every school, agency and practice is a “system,” and operates in its own unique way. Integrating a new idea such as the solution focused climate is a real paradigm shift, requiring a close look at how the system operates best before implementation. The afternoon will help you do this and identify the steps to make the transition work with YOUR school, agency or practice. And, we will use the solution focused approach to make that plan!

Come learn with me! For over twenty five years, I have used the solution focused approach in schools as a school counselor, consultant, teacher and therapist. The approach works and I want to share it with you!
