Management of emotional and behavioral disorders among children – a solution focused approach

A solution focused approach of management of children with emotional and behavioral disorders is developed based on the notion that whatever problem the child has, there is always a skill the child can learn – with the support of his or her family and friends – that will allow the child to overcome the problem. A step-by-step method with 15 steps is known as Kids’ Skills was developed by Dr. Ben Furman from Finland.  Kids’ Skills is a practical method for helping children overcome all kinds of behavioral and emotional difficulties. How the solution-focused approach differs from the problem-focused model, the ways of presenting the skills to children, building the children’s confidence, building and practicing and reinforcing the learned skills etc. will be handled in the session along with suitable examples.
