Designed to complement any theoretical framework, Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT) engages and activates clients to make change, whether they are new to therapy or have found themselves “stuck” in the therapeutic process. Unlike traditional problem-driven approaches, Solution-Focused Therapy helps clients to identify personal strengths and areas of successful functioning which they can build upon.
SFT translates the idea of “strength-based treatment” into concrete, easily digestible concepts and skills. Packed with case examples; video and film demonstrations; discussion and practice, the workshop is engaging, informative and immediately useful to clinicians at any skill level.
• Gain practical SFT skills that instill hope and promote change
• Learn how to quickly engage your most challenging clients to become active participants in therapy
• Enhance the effectiveness of your current therapeutic approaches and skill sets
• Experience greater creativity and satisfaction in your work
• Leave the workshop with the confidence to put the skills and concepts you have learned into practice the very next day
Counselors, Social Workers, Psychologists, Case Managers, Addiction Counselors, Marriage & Family Therapists, Nurses, and other professionals who work as change agents.
