My latest book: “Mr. Bear Wants to Be Loved: and Other Stories About Making Change Easier – for Children and Their Parents” is out!

This book was born as a challenge: how to introduce Solution-Focus in terms so simple that even a 6-year-old would understand.

True to its objective, it became a book for children about how to make change easier.

In this book you find 9 short stories about change.

Each story illustrates a simple strategy to make change easier or to think differently about problems.

The main characters of the book are Ms. Elephant and Mr. Monkey.
They meet other animals who want to make a change in their lives.
Mr. Monkey is very well intentioned, and he tries to help the forest’s inhabitants following the traditional, orproblem-focused, approach to change. Ms. Elephant is very well intentioned too. She helps the forest’s inhabitants by empowering them using a Solution-Focused approach.

The stories can be read by (or to) children age 4 to 8.

Each story is accompanied by some comments and suggestions for further reading.

The comments are aimed at adults who might want to find out more about the concept presented in each story, and learn a little bit more about how to make change easier in their own lives.
