Back in the autumn of 2014, I had the great pleasure of being invited to see Colin Newton and Claire Darwin deliver a full-day course on person-centred practices, delivered for teachers in Barnsley. Having embraced solution-focused thinking several years previously, and later adopted person-centred approaches, I was curious to see how others approached these concepts and practices. Colin and his associates have taken these ideas to a level that many may have thought not possible.
Colin Newton and Inclusive Solutions worked with with Zena Martin in the spring term 2018 Forum to deliver ‘Emotional Wellbeing’ and ‘Chairing Meetings’ to the Inclusion Forums. Delegates loved the interactive style and graphics…..
