Description

On this one-day workshop, participants will have exposure to a very brief historical roots of Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) and the key pioneers, followed by theoretical foundations and how it differs from other therapies: present and goal focused, and on the person, not the problem etc. There are definite advantages to SFBT, especially when sessions are limited and these will be presented and discussed along with some of the disadvantages of SFBT.

Problems are not a focus in SFBT, but rather a guide to goal-clarification and goal-setting. We will then look at the role of the therapist and how it differs from other therapies.

By the end of the workshop, participants will be familiar with the theoretical model and be able to successfully utilise SFBT interventions in their own style of counselling/therapy or as a stand-alone SFBT model.

The main focus will be the practical application of the theory and interventions to a therapeutic situation. Participants will be introduced to the major techniques of SFBT: How to conduct the first session; Clarifying and Setting Goals, the Miracle Question, Scaling, Coping and Exceptions.
