    For the past 7 months I have been working with behavioral and developmentally challenged youth. With the help of solution focused brief therapy and its methodology, I have managed to redirect the negative behavior of many of the clients towards a more thought provoking approach to their challenges. Many at first thought I was coming across as a therapist. Once we moved into conversation I was able to create interest in a mutual way that at least opened them up to seeking alternatives from their initial position. I am working on my self management to better understand my own triggers and how I react/respond to engagement. It’s like conducting meditation in real time with a client. Listening for my thoughts/behaviors and how they impact, are received by my clients. An interesting ‘state of mind’ to be in.
