Profile Information

Where are you based? (City & Country)
In which role(s) do you use SF ideas and tools? (You can pick more than one)
Coach, Trainer
What is your connection to Solution Focused Work (based on Insoo Kim Berg and Steve de Shazer at BFTC Milwaukee and others)?
I met the approach cooperating with Áron Levendel. Since then I am experimenting every day treating people as experts of their lives.
Currently I learn SF teamcoaching from Katalin Hankovszky.
I have worked in education, in a foster home. I have experienced the lack of solution focused attitude in this field - and can imagine the great support it can give.
Right now I am looking for ways to make this approach available for people working in education / mentoring in Hungary.
I am looking for experts sharing this approach with teachers or using it in educational field.

If you are interested in cooperation here is some more information

You prefer a "step by step" introduction instead to start with reading some
voluminous books?

You would appreciate to have a complete "helicopter view" on SF after the first step…
