˜Your SFBT tip for June 2014:
As usual, we learn so much from the individuals in our workshops and consulting
groups. Recently, we had a wonderful description of how one of our participants
was able to work with a terminally ill child and her family. This of course was
not a situation where the outcome could be changed. Instead, the focus was on
how each of the family members was coping. The list of strengths that the family
was able to provide reminded us not to make assumptions about where our clients
are at. This family had an incredible story of how they were coping and thriving
through an obviously difficult life event. Remember, "It is always better to work
with the client you have in the room, rather than the one you created in your head."
