Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
July 26 @ 9:30 AM - 4:30 PM
Solution-focused therapy is an empowering, client centered, strength-based model with broad applicability to diverse clients and settings. An evidence-based practice demonstrated to be effective as a short-term intervention; it can be used as a primary therapeutic model, or integrated with other approaches. The basic goal of SFBT is for clients to discover and implement “solutions” (i.e. behaviors) that help them achieve their goal state. This workshop will discuss the value in making the paradigm shift of becoming solution-, rather than problem-focused, as most clinicians were trained to be. Participants will learn and practice straightforward, collaborative, and exploratory methods for helping clients set motivating goals and then identify and implement practical, individualized strategies to achieve them.
