Solution Focus for Teachers: Is there another way?

As a Solution Focus Practitioner and Coach, having worked with various audiences, it was in 2014 that I first facilitated a workshop aimed at parents and teachers. These participants were taking care of children with an ADHD condition and our work together was held in the framework of an E.U. Program led by the University of Thessaloniki. Today, in advance of a series of workshops for education professionals to be held soon by The Study Rooms in Athens, I would like to share a bit more about how Solution Focus can help people working with children, as it is still a little known approach in Greece.

We usually think of start-ups as problem-solvers. But is that precise? After two days spent at the Start-Up Weekend Patras, coaching students, last weekend, something became more clear.

WORKSHOP: “Island city; A wokshop of imagination”

What would happen if we could bring the summer into the winter? The island in the city? The summer calmness into the urban lifestyle? On the 1st and 2nd of July, on the magnificent island of Amorgos in the Aegean Sea, a workshop of imagination took place! The participants had the opportunity to discover the Solution Focus approach, while building their personal solutions so that they can bring all the magic and carelessness of the island, back to the wintery city. That was a very special summer experience with particularly nice people, unexpected discoveries and many... solutions!
