Event description

Description

As mental health professionals become better informed about--and more committed to--using therapy approaches that are effective with a wide range of presenting issues, the Solution-Focused Brief Therapy approach is becoming more widely embraced. Using approaches that have demonstrated outcome-based benefits and that engage clients in a more collaborative approach can result in dramatic and rapid changes. Solution-Focused Brief Therapy helps clients focus on the future and what is wanted in the client’s life. Insurance companies value the SFBT approach that produces quantifiable outcomes in fewer client sessions. And clients report appreciation for the collaborative and validating therapy relationship.

This two-day workshop introduces mental health professionals to the SFBT stance and weaves together SFBT concepts and practices. The workshop will be highly experiential as participants practice and apply the approach using various exercises and role-plays. Demonstrations and videos augment the workshop experience.

Like the SFBT approach, this workshop is outcome-focused emphasizing the following objectives for participants:

  1. Understand the historical development of the approach

  2. Recognize and describe the basic SFBT stance

  3. Name basic SFBT concepts

  4. Understand the evidence base and wide applicability of the approach

  5. Learn and demonstrate several common practices and techniques inherent in the approach

  6. Review ethics related to solution-focused brief practice: One Hour CEU credit

This approach also prevents burn-out by de-emphasizing client resistance and focusing on how clients cooperate in therapy by describing desired changes, consequences of those changes, and steps that can be taken to reach them.

Participants will leave this two-day interactive workshop with new ideas and new energy for their work with individuals, children, couples, and families.

This 2-Day training will build upon itself and therefore, the training cost is for the entire 2 days.
