Solution Focused Interventions:
For all aspects of our society, life is filled with a plethora of challenges and problems. A multitude of issues that affect us on many levels and scales (i.e., individual, community, national, and worldwide) are often regurgitated to us in commentaries, lectures, and speeches; however, they are generally met with impotent theoretical solutions that yield little efficacy when operationalized. For every problem there is a solution. Then why are there so many unsolved problems in the world? Why do problems remain unsolved? There a variations of reasons, but it boils down to two reasons.
1.Our desire to have them remained unsolved is greater than our desire to solve them.
2.Sometimes we do not even attempt to create solutions because the situation appears impossible.
At the end of this session participants will understand how to:
1.Recognize that all problems have solutions.
2.Learn to accurately identify the major problem to be solved.
3.Develop skills to develop proper interventions that can be operationalized.
4.Learn easy and effective ways to monitor the effectiveness of the interventions.

Motivational / Inspirational:
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us…..Dickens words from “A Tale of Two Cities” still ring true in this millennium. We live in a paradoxical society where we commonly experience the ecstasy of glorious accomplishments and the depths of despair from horrific tragedies. This category is reserved for the momentous occasions and events that require a dynamic entity to help to energize or to galvanize a community for all various occasions.
