Metcalf presents a positive program for changing individual behavior. Her program empowers students of all ages to deal with their problems and gain self-esteem.

This book shows how to help individual students begin their own change process by noticing when a problem does not occur (i.e. when things go better than normal), rather than focusing on the problem or what caused it. This approach, called Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, is often used by private counselors and therapists and is now being applied in K-12 schools with great success. In this book veteran school counselor Linda Metcalf offers guidelines for dealing with specific problems ranging from incomplete homework to child abuse and depression. She offers techniques that are equally useful in one-on-one counseling and small group settings, and provides ways to help non-counseling staff use the solution-focused approach. The book offers more than 80 reproducible worksheets and student handouts.
