Becky Taylor about miniatures and sand trays. In today’s episode, we talk with Assoc. Prof. Becky Taylor at the TCU Counseling Program about Solution Focused work with children and adolescents. Becky shares with us what fascinates her with Solution Focus, how she started to focus on resources instead of deficits, her fascination for resilience, and how she got in touch with Solution Focus. Hear her tips and tricks on how to use miniatures and sand trays in a Solution Focused way with children and adolescents and what differences she has noticed. Learn more about her book "Solution-Focused Therapy with Children and Adolescents: Creative and Play Based Approaches“ which is coming out in April 2019. Check out embodied learning or how she uses the miracle question, rehearsing the preferred future, and scaling with miniatures with children and adolescents, how she involves the parents, teachers, or friends of the child, and how she gets them playing. And accept her challenge to look for what’s right about people, the good things people do, and to help people realize that. Check out The Challenge of the week: When you see children and their parents, do something that lets the parents know that you appreciate something that they do with their children or let the children know that you appreciate them.
