My Theory of Change with Clients (adapted from Steve De Shazer)

This is my theory of change of how I work with my clients in general. The approach is largely influenced by the Solution Focused Approach where I believe that we always need to start with where the client is, and we go in to listen in a very intentional manner for specific areas. And after I picked up the different ideas and processed it, I will then zoom in and work with it according to the goals and outcome of what the client and family is working towards. From here, we will then start to build and create solutions and actionable steps together with the client. At all times, these actions and solutions will come from the client rather than prescribed by me which will then lead to ownership and accountability.

Through my years of working with different youths and parents, I have always found this way of working enjoyable for everyone including myself because its respectful and it also acknowledges the client as the true expert of their situations and life.
