Successful Brief Therapy—Going Beyond Classic Solution-Focused Models
Whether it is because of agency demands for services, session limits by insurance companies, or clients' impatience to put a problem to rest, short-term therapy is no longer just a clinical model but also an increasingly necessary approach to therapy services. It's about interaction and direction, education and accountability; it's about behavior, action, breaking patterns, doing it different. It's more Dr. Phil and less Dr. Freud. It's a way of thinking about problems and a specific way of working in sessions.
Through lecture, role-plays and demonstrations, and case examples, you'll learn how to hit the ground running from the initial contact. Going beyond the classic solution-focused models and miracle questions, we'll discuss how and where to focus for quick and accurate assessments, give you roadmaps for treating the common problems that couples and families present—affairs; addictions; the violent, ambivalent, or stale couple; the family with the acting-out teen. You'll learn how to define and change the core dynamic that keeps individuals and couples stuck, motivate clients to break out of patterns and step outside of their comfort zones, and learn powerful, experiential exercises for both assessment and treatment.
Whether you want to try on a new perspective and shake up what you do, fine-tune, or learn some new tricks, you will leave this workshop feeling creative and energized.
