The significance of the relationship of counselors and administrators evidenced during solution-focused conversations seminars
The workshop "Teaming Principals and Counselors to Create Solution-Focused Schools" led by Dr. John M. Littrell and sponsoring agency, Area Education Association (AEA), formed the basis for this research project. Participants of this workshop series focusing on solution-focused conversations were school counselors and school administrators from central Iowa. Following a review of the literature regarding solution-focused conversations and solution-focused brief therapy, information was gleaned from three individual surveys completed by each participant. The comments and responses to the questions were analyzed in an effort to determine the significance of the relationship between counselors and administrators during the process of implementing solution-focused conversations into an educational setting. The limitations to this process include the inability to determine the significance of the relationship on a broader scale of overall school change. This is a possibility in further and more extensive research.
