A Fresh Eye – Introduction Most of us want to learn from the masters, the long experienced, to help us refine our work. Yet, for people new to SF, it is perhaps encouraging and useful to learn how other inexperienced people have approached their work using SF. For more experienced practitioners, beginners can bring a fresh eye and perhaps introduce novel ways of using SF. As such, we aim to highlight this work whenever we can.
An Introduction to Fredrike Bannink
Introduced by Carey Glass This choice of Treasured Article goes right back to the first publication of InterAction in May 2009; Solution Focused Conflict Management in Teams and in Organisations by Frederike Bannink.
Chosen for its elegance of description, it illuminates the Solution Focused approach to conflict resolution simply and clearly, provides a pure table of differences between Solution Focus and a problem-focused approach and is accompanied by a brief, easily followed case study.
In the period of April and May 2020 we did a wonderful project at MentalHelpers Ons Dorp. They asked us if the working routines in the psychiatric clinic (mainly ambulatory, not clinical) could be simplified, more fluent and easier to change by workers and patients. Getting that the chance for better results and outcome could be much bigger than before the project.
