Brief Coaching With Children And Young People: A Solution Focused Approach
Price: £20.00

Brief Coaching with Children and Young People: A Solution Focused Approach is the first book of its type to describe the thinking and practice of Solution coaching with these age groups.

The Approach empowers young people to find their own solutions in the shortest possible time, focusing on where they want to get to rather than the details of the problem they are concerned about. The author's emphasis on practical and straightforward techniques and materials will equip all those interested in working with and supporting young people and their families to help them achieve their goals for the future. The book is illustrated with numerous examples from the coaching practice of the authors in different settings, with a particular emphasis on challenging cases. As a whole it serves as a key resource for working with children and young people, and each chapter can be read as a separate topic. Downloadable resources are available online which enhance the practicality of the text.

Ratner and Yusuf have created a practical, jargon free resource for all those who work with and support children and young people and their families. It will be invaluable for coaches therapists and counsellors as well as anyone who interacts with children and young people, including social workers, teachers and mentors and foster parents.


‘I just want to be able to sleep.’ Is sleeping somehow different?

People may want to be happier, have a better relationship with someone in their life, they may want to find confidence and courage and some of them of course might want to sleep. Evan George asks whether we can treat all these examples in the same way or whether there is something different about the sleep response.
