Clarify Students' Problems

DEF works directly with counselors to build Decision Quality capacities they can use in the context of their work with students and staff. DEF's decision-making framework and tools help bring clear solutions to challenging problems.

In the video above, you'll hear how a counselor at an Oregon high school leveraged the Decision Chain framework to work with her students.
