About Mark Bocker
Using SFBT through mentoring programmes for young people since training with BRIEF in 2001. I do not take a particularly therapeutic approach but rather focus on the SF element so that young people can become empowered to take action themselves. It's such a powerful and successful approach in supporting some of the most vulnerable and often challenging young people.
Currently, after 30+ years in education finishing as headteacher of a Pupil Referral Unit in Lancashire, I run my own little training and consultancy business - Creative and Restorative UK. I also work as an associate for Creative Education Ltd and Dragonfly Ltd as a trainer on numerous courses and for Panorama Associates as a consultant.
Looking forward to deepening my understanding of SF practices now that I have a bit more time!
