Engaging with the Scottish Government's agenda on health and social care.
Smith, Steve; Buchanan, Graham
Outside of SF circles, SF remains relatively unknown. The Scottish Solution Focused Network (SSFN) is an organisation of SF practitioners established to support and promote SF practice in Scotland. In this paper, the authors discuss their recent thinking, derived from a series of conversations within the SSFN, on how their organisation can engage with one aspect of the Scottish Government's (formerly known as the Scottish Executive) strategy for health and wellbeing. They argue that SF practitioners in this field have a moral obligation to engage in political discourse, and that in Scotland, the Government are actively promoting SF methodologies in practice.
