B1. Joining
Joining is a concept used in Solutions Focused Therapy that encompasses the process of engagement. The practitioner adopts a respectful stance and demonstrates a genuine curiosity to understand the experiences and perspectives of the client. This is a suitable approach for clients for whom the  experience of grief is deeply personal.
