FREE Book Preview for SSWN Readers
Hello SSWN friends, I have an amazing gift to share with all the SSW within the reach of this site: thanks to SSW Titan Dr. Cynthia Franklin and her publisher Taylor & Francis, I’ve been given permission to share FREE access to her latest book, SFBT in Alternative Schools: Ensuring Student Success and Preventing Dropout. Access to this important work is only available for roughly 3 weeks (through October 19th), and Dr. Franklin is graciously providing it to me to share with our network. Here’s the link:
and here’s a description of the book from her preface:
Solution Focused Brief Therapy in Alternative Schools (SFBT) provides a step-by-step guide for how school social workers and counselors can work with other school professionals to create an effective solution focused dropout prevention program. Along with illustrative cases and detailed explanations, the authors detail the curriculum and day-to-day operations of a solution focused dropout prevention program by drawing on the experiences of a school that uses this approach.
Please give it a read, and after applying some of the ideas to your SSW practice, submit an article about SFBT for our SSWN site, please let us know!
Additional SFBT/SSW/Dr. Franklin Resources:
