Social workers who utilize the solution-focused model are mindful of how their conversations with their clients, families, groups or even community members facilitate their thinking about solutions. The client is always the “expert,” and therefore, social workers ask questions to explore how the client perceives the problem and situation.
Respond to two colleagues:
Identify a barrier that might make it difficult to implement the solution-focused model with the client described.
Discuss how a social worker could help a client re-focus on the present rather than on their past.
