Solution focus tenets are at the heart of best practice when engaging families. The worker needs to approach the interview in a thoughtful and prepared way. It makes the client the expert in their life; ethnographic interviewing is the driver of these methods. Using culturally appropriate and multicultural methods in the interview is central to this learning. The core model addressed will be solution-focused methods. Participants will learn by way of lecture, small group activities, role-plays and examples in the media.
