Summary Step by step, Counseling Toward Solutions shows how to help individual students begin their own change process by noticing when a problem does not occur 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 the schools with great success.
