Solution-Focused Therapy techniques you can use immediately with every client
Solution-Focused Therapy focuses on the strengths and abilities of people instead of on the problems that intrude in their lives. The SF approach helps both therapist and clients see beyond the problems that have attempted to cripple their lives and open up to the possibility that every client is competent to begin working toward a solution. The approach helps the therapist to see resiliency, strengths, and possibilities as the client unfolds his/her story and assists the therapist to help the client define a preferred future.
This one-day seminar will address how to use the model with every client you see. By creating goals with the client through a variety of questions, you will learn how to help clients work efficiently to accomplish the desired change in their lives, even on a minor scale, no matter what the circumstance. You will learn the basics of the approach and see that Solution-Focused Therapy is not about techniques. Instead, it is about a way of thinking and seeing clients differently, as having answers, not just problems. Even though each client presents a different issue, by thinking of the client with a Solution-Focused lens, you will learn about how applications and processes emerge that are helpful. This respectful approach will allow you to hear whatever the client brings to therapy and then help the client express where the therapy process goes, no matter what the issue.
