Skills/Course content: “How can I help you to get rid of me?” “How could you worsen your situation?” Although rather unusual at a first glance, these questions are an integral part of the standard repertoire of questions used when applying methods, theories, and mindsets of systemic social work. It is a solution and resource-oriented approach, which is of great importance to social work. It is based on a constructivist view of the world as well an understanding that people have “eigensinn” (ownership of their own perspectives), i.e. they are autonomous. In addition to unusual questions, many other tools of systemic social work will be used in this seminar. By taking part in exercises in small groups, participants will get the opportunity to become familiar with the systemic social work approach and explore its effectiveness and benefits. Throughout the four-day course, active participation is the prerequisite for obtaining credits.
