This assignment will allow you to reflect on what you have learnt in the workshop. It will also illustrate how you have implemented the skills suggested in the workshop. As part of the workshop outcomes you are required to do some practical work in your practice or work with clients. If you do not have clients to use you may do a role play session with a friend. You will be expected to try using Solution Talk with a client and then write down what you experienced. This can be done within one of your current sessions with a client. This practical exercise will take you about 2 hours to do. You do not have to do the 2 hours all in one go and can break it up over a few sessions with your clients. So let’s get started and enjoy! 1.
