The SOS (Sense of Self) Model = benefits of group work + solution-focused counseling + psychoeducational skills development. This program clearly explains and demonstrates group practices, solution-focused counseling, and proven strategies for implementation of support groups in schools.
Imagine having a program that allows counselors and other helping professionals to meet many more students’ critical needs, save a great deal of planning and implementation time, and develop skills in self acceptance, communication, interpersonal skills, conflict resolution, decision making, and self care! The SOS Model provides group session plans and interactive group activities to meet all of the ASCA National Standards for Personal/Social Development.
Special issues including anger management, bullying, depression, conflict, and eating disorders can be effectively addressed with SOS groups.
This practical “how to” book includes ready-to-use tools to set up, run, and evaluate groups, needs assessments, letters to parents and teachers, solution-focused interview guides for a multitude of issues, 54 session guides and handouts, and evaluations. One CD-ROM includes all forms, guides, and handouts as reproducible pdfs. A second CD-ROM includes reproducible lessons and handouts translated into Spanish.
