SFP 72 - Episode 72: Our Unique Perspective: Seeing an Elephant with a Rhino Horn with John Wheeler
“When we know what people want all the other tools fall into place.”
In today’s episode, we talk with John Wheeler, M.A., Social Worker, UKCP Registered Systemic Psychotherapist, Solution Focused Trainer, Supervisor and Consultant as well as Board Member of the EBTA, about
what fascinated him with Solution Focus at the beginning and how his conversations changed,
how he and Greg Vinnicombe collected Solution Focused assumptions, categorized them into four groups, and have been teaching them,
how this focus on assumptions keeps him on track,
learning from our clients or an example of how adapting to the session rating scale (SRS) changed his conversation,
from roughly connecting to truly connecting to our clients,
Solution Focused Supervision,
to be mindful of our own special perspective and the different contexts,
their SF trainings and bridging quality assessments in a solution-focused way,
assuming people have resources, asking SF questions and being patient.
The Challenge of the Week: „Look out for what you love most about your use of SF, based on the benefit you see it bringing to the people you are working with.”
