Wei-Su Shu on SF in China and Taiwan. In today’s episode, we talk with Wei-Su Hsu, Professor at the Department of Educational Psychology and Counseling, at National Taiwan Normal University in Taipei, about the cultural adaptions of Solution Focus (SF) in Taiwan and mainland China. Check out what fascinates her with Solution Focus, how her SF journey started, how she worked with Insoo Kim Berg, and what she learned from her. Enjoy her craziness for Solution Focus and what she learned from translating SF books into Chinese. Find out more about cultural adaptions of Solution Focus in Taiwan and mainland China (e.g. with the miracle question, scaling or complimenting), what helps her to learn Solution Focus, and how she benefits from practitioners, students, and clients. Learn more about SF in schools and her research “The Effectiveness of Solution-Focused Group Therapy in Ethnic Chinese School Settings: A Meta-Analysis”. Hear her take on complimenting and reframing in the Chinese culture and persuading people to accept Solution Focused concepts. Wei-Su shares her teaching of Solution Focus in Taiwan and mainland China and her aim to be less the expert and to wonder more. She closes with two stories about Insoo Kim Berg or how she showed her not to be the expert and do her own things. The Challenge of the week: “I invite you all to practice to learn to believe in miracles.”
