  • outline how to work with children to understand how problems are impacting on their lives and noticing the limits of these impacts so that children’s strengths, skills, and know-how can be explored
  • identify how to ensure problems are understood in the social context of children’s lives so that shame is minimised and overcome in the lives of childrendiscuss how to help children to notice when problems are shrinking, and the skills and know-how they have used to shrink the problem.
