Post-conference Worksop with Ben Furman
Kids’Skills and Beyond:
Innovative and creative solution-focused methods to help children and teens overcome problems and learn social skills.
More than 20 years ago, in a Finnish kindergarten for children for special needs, we developed a method for helping children overcome all kinds of emotional and behavioural problems that we called Kids’Skills. It is a collection of 15 useful solution-focused ideas for coaching children to change their behaviour in a creative and fun way. The method has since become popular in many countries around the world and more recently its principles have increasingly been used not only with children but also with teenagers, adults, couples and entire families. The latest development is called Skilful Class, which is a solution-focused game for creating happy schools through helping children develop prosocial skills. In this workshop you will learn how to expand your scope and bring the fun of SFT not only into your work but to your personal life as well.
