Solution focused therapy (SFT) has not only become one of the leading schools of brief therapy, it has become a major influence in such diverse fields as business, social policy, education, and criminal justice services, child welfare, domestic violence offender’s treatment. Described as a practical, goal-driven model, a hallmark of SFT is its emphasis on clear, concise, realistic goal negotiations. The SFT approach assumes that all clients have some knowledge of what would make their life better, even though they may need some help describing the details of their better life and that everyone who seeks help already possesses at least the minimal skills necessary to create solutions.
This one-day workshop will equip you with the skills and knowledge to work in a solution focused way, including goal setting, the use of scaling techniques and of course, miracle questions.
