A distinctly positive trend in applied psychology is the increasing awareness about strength-based, positively oriented and solution-focused interventions in the place of problem-focused approaches. How is the 'solution-focus' applicable in educational settings? Do studies support their effectiveness in addressing student's issues? Can newer brief group interventions help in empowering a large number of students in a short time? The present paper explores the components and scope of solution-focused interventions with students. It then explores the relevance of the same in Indian academic context. Preliminary research in this area can lead to increased familiarity and interest in brief positive approaches in high schools and colleges. Some suggestions for future research are included.

Abstract


A distinctly positive trend in applied psychology is the increasing awareness about strength-based, positively oriented and solution-focused interventions in the place of problem-focused approaches. How is the 'solution-focus' applicable in educational settings? Do studies support their effectiveness in addressing student's issues? Can newer brief group interventions help in empowering a large number of students in a short time? The present paper explores the components and scope of solution-focused interventions with students. It then explores the relevance of the same in Indian academic context. Preliminary research in this area can lead to increased familiarity and interest in brief positive approaches in high schools and colleges. Some suggestions for future research are included.
